Low Light | 2024 | Installation view

Statement (2024)

I am constantly drawn back to the idea that I am simply painting light. Light is colour and reflection that exists within material. It is the difference between what is visible and what is invisible. In these paintings, light is held within the varying intensities of colour, the shadows cast by the sculptural quality of the handmade frames and the way each surface interacts with the next depending on the light in the gallery, the time of day or where you stand.

By creating subtle complexity in surface rather than image, I aim to focus on the basic elements that make up a painting: frame, ground and colour. The simple interactions between the understated gradients, the cracks in the surfaces and the variations of shape from one painting to the next are at the core of this work. Through colour and carefully rendered surface, I seek a type of minimalism that finds beauty in empty space as it exists both inside and outside the frame of the painting.
