I studied BA Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University from 1991-1994 and at MA Fine Art The Royal Academy Schools, London, from 1994-1997 and I am currently represented by Tintype Gallery, London.
Joint Course Leader BA Fine Art
Reveling in material and visual flippancy, I fidget, probe and tweak the abundant dark matter of studio experimentation and collected pound-shop tat. The resulting accumulations present a potential momentary resolution between improvisation and refinement.
The works form part of a continuous and evolving search for meaning and understanding through a very physical and hands on experience that is prioritized over a foregrounding in language. Individual pieces often emerge from the physical and intellectual processes of fidgeting, impatience and intuition, employing the rejected and discarded matter of experimentation and speculation; where one work often springs from the destruction of another.
