About

Born in Nottingham, (1993), I moved to London to complete a Fine Art Degree at Chelsea College of Arts in 2016. Since then I have been working in a Studio in South London and have taken part in numerous group shows.

 

An array of materials and layers are condensed in my paintings. I have developed a technique whereby I apply oil paint in between a wax paste and repeat over several layers to allow me to work sculpturally and increase the depth and contrasts in textures. My interest in layers is a reaction to the increasing flatness of visual culture. I try to fascinate the viewer by presenting a single thing with multiple parts all-visible at once, to present a painting with the basic tangibility of a sculpture or a sculpture with the graphic vigour of a painting. I want viewers to engage not with a surface but with a sedimentation of surfaces, one which promotes pause and to stimulate a roving eye.
