“I am concerned with how paint can change an image. Is it possible to reveal the process of observing and recording over an extended period of time, like viewing the past through a history of slides, each colouring the one before; experiencing a sort of cumulative vision? A portrait is a representation; it is in essence, something and nothing, a contradiction. Painting seems to emphasise this paradox because of the tension between surface and illusion. I find one disrupts the other; the mind tries to suspend disbelief but is interrupted by the physicality of the paint. I am interested in this friction; the lack of substance that undermines the fine skin of illusionary space. I want to examine representation, to put it under stress, to the point where visual information breaks down, where our sight fails and gaps appear.”
