A Pause For Thought

My practice involves the creation of a series of intimate oil portrait paintings primarily using colour, negative space and geometry to evoke emotion. I present the everyday mundane, exploring introspection, reverie and melancholy. The paintings are on a smaller scale to create a sense of intimacy with the viewer and to reflect the nature of the small moments within the work. This sizing also allows for a more dynamic relationship between the pieces through curation, prompting connection or contrast.

The Series

A selection of works made over the course of the year.

Connecting Parallels

This collaborative exhibition showcased from the 24th – 26th of April 2024 was co curated by myself, Martha Jordan and Santiago Leon. The show explored the introspective nature of the human experience, framing our individual perceptions of the world around us through others, be it with painting, photography or spoken word.
