My practice explores the process of painting and installation. Recent works have looked at the relationship between mass production, unique production and the role of the viewer within that environment. It's important within my work that the viewer's role within the artwork is constantly addressed. The theatrical dance/fight that takes place when making these works produces a lively and animated aesthetic to the work, much like Pollock or Price would have done, only limited by our physical body to reach and throw the paint. This painting method effectively extends the artwork across onto the wall breaking the boundary of the canvas during the production. Only once the painting is taken from the situation and presented does it transcend and become the artwork and a fragment of the situation it was created in. Arts context is what makes all artworks so unique and important. For my work, I try to address the matter of relationships and the question of uniqueness, which is especially important in light of my generation growing up within social media.
