2011

Oil on canvas

Concerned with modernity amongst other issues; the presentation of a man wearing a top-hat, coupled with an electric quality of light emanating from the shirt is somewhat of a comment on modern day society.

My paintings represent a nocturnal narrative flow. Some of the pieces are concerned predominantly with giving artificial light physical substance, whilst others present a historical trajectory. I am conscious of the phenomena I am depicting and its relationship with modernism. I am constantly engaged in representing a world which only exists as a result of man-made light. An entire culture has developed on the back of this processed light, and this is reflected in the ‘nightclub’, empty ‘urban street scenes’ and ‘MTV music video stills’ that I depict within the studio. 

 
Furthermore, I have realised that the images I translate are somewhat illusory – in effect I am painting the pixels that allow me to witness the image, whether from the illuminated television, computer or camera screen. I have also begun to question my work in relation to ‘space’;the very fact I freeze and pause the original image begs the question as to whether these images actually exist in real time, or are simply an illusion? This is because the naked eye fails to actually see the images I capture, and can only witness them once frozen, paused or translated onto my canvas. Some of my pieces hover between abstraction and realism, and the painting process can allow them to become more ambiguous than the original digital image.
