About

My work is inspired by English traditional ‘popular arts’ – accessible visual languages that are remnants of a world that is disappearing and becoming engulfed by globalisation, at the same time as being resistant to this through their very nature and origin. 

Recent work has been motivated by cynicism in neoliberal politics and the concealment of this through use of the façade. My research has focused on Thatcherism in Britain, epitomised by the ‘Right to Buy’ legislation that enabled council property tenants to purchase their home from the local authority. This helped to forge a link between dignity and ownership, one that has been intensifying ever since.

We see the effects that such an ethos is having, beneath a façade of social concern and ideas of freedom, we are being separated from each other and entrapped through lack of education and cycles of work and leisure.

My series of paintings with text and borders are inspired by the scale, imagery and format of vernacular English art, in particular the pub sign and worker's union banners. Each one contains an ominous message and humorously reveals a disheartening truth that was hiding behind the façade.
