About

My work is the result of an ongoing dialogue between video and painting.

I work with time, change and a shifting sense of presence or absence.

I particularly focus on relationships between people as captured on film in sound, rhythms, words and movements. I combine both personal everyday observation and feature films so including relationships between who we are, and who we would like to be. Out of disparate encounters, correspondences occur.

I work with gesture. However in contrast to traditional gestural abstraction, my gestures are attempts to capture the words, gestures and communications of others.

A form or energy emerges out of my countless repeated attempts to capture individuals’ communications both spontaneous and performed from different eras.

I sometimes revisit sites used previously as a source for the work. These are returned to after an interval of time has passed, to film what happens when the paintings are placed in current situations related to performances from which they were originally drawn. Often the unforeseen occurs and the works are subsequently developed integrating the unexpected and others’ response or obliviousness as part of their fabric.

The presentation creates a space in which to contemplate a dialogue between painting and video and notice the connections and correspondences that may subsequently emerge.
