STILL LIFE

"In 2009 I focused on painting tonal realist still life compositions, using inherited objects which included pristine porcelains, vintage fabrics, an old wind vane and old kitchen tins. I found myself interested in their inherent beauty; both those which have maintained their original pristine condition and those which are showing the wear and tear of time and use. By painting these objects my intention was to draw others to the beauty, which in their three-dimensional everyday state can be overlooked.

 

"Other paintings explore the highly recognisable silhouette of an object, and contained within the silhouette are objects or scenes which express a personality or relationship."
