ARTIST STATEMENT

I have been engrained in the genre of appropriation for many years. It has allowed me the opportunity to vigorously investigate and revisit the vast history of art that I continue to circumnavigate within a contemporary context. During the creation of each work I am attempting to understand the tension within the relationship between our modern culture and its historical equivalent.

These image fragments, appropriated from historical paintings, are placed in a contemporary context when ‘locked’ or ‘squeezed’ between colour fields of aggressive colour and texture and found objects.
