Emergent protagonists (2022)

Working in monoprint, drypoint and oil, I've focused on scraping and wiping the human form out of ink or onto canvas. I want my figures to communicate, to shout "here I am" or to sigh. I have used sequential monoprint, repeatedly re-working a printing plate without cleaning between prints, to generate sequences, and in the film "Like Beacons", experimented with including text from my documentation. These working processes, as well as life drawing, and slack-jawed perusing of Elle Decoration, have fed into a series of large oil paintings of male nude figures grappling with capitalism's plundering of the body's sensuality. Some of this work, including Like Beacons was shown at the In Free Fall  Exhibition at the Ruskin Gallery in Cambridge.

Contactless Living (2021-2022)

In urban areas, the world looks different now. Contactless living is everywhere - especially in the way we eat, apparent in the blossoming of meal delivery scooters and bikes. When I moved to Cambridge in lockdowned 2020, these meal deliverers were often the only protagonists of the otherwise deserted street scenes I observed and sketched. Some of this work has been shown at the RBA Rising Stars exhibition 2021, Through The Red Door at the Zion Baptist Crypt (Cambridge), New Beginnings at the Blue House Yard gallery (London), and the 2022 ING Discerning Eye Exhibition at the Mall Galleries (London)
