I am interested in our urban environment, the sprawling metropolises, the infrastructure that feeds them and how we experience it all. I find an uncanny beauty in London's ever changing landscape and am fascinated by glimpses of spaces that are just out of reach and the ever present neon glow.
Taking inspiration from my everyday surroundings, I collect snapshots of this banal yet beguiling landscape using the immediacy of the camera on my mobile phone. This imagery undergoes digital manipulation before being translated into painterly gesture, alluding to the notion that we increasingly encounter our environment mediated through technology.
Evidencing connections diverse as 19th Century Sublime, optical abstraction and Science Fiction, I construct new spaces within my work which engage with the city through digital, cinematic and painterly space.
