Do Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?

Whilst walking through a city that reminded me of London, I was struck by a memory of when I lived there. I would read science fiction as I travelled around in the underground aware that perhaps one day the outlandish notions that I came across would become fact. The imagination allows us infinite time traveling capacity and artists of all stripes fashion the context. It is a gratifying thing. Real Sensory Energy.

With reference to my painting practice I have always been fascinated by the notion of editing or curating my actions in a focused manner.  I try to contain every thing that is meaningful in the moment.  It is a challenge that I find appealing.  However ironic, the mannered anarchic splash of paint feels authentic in its materiality coupled with the process-bound stencil, or the slow steady manipulation of paint on canvas as geometry.

Various notions of the ‘sublime’ and ‘transience’ underpin the aesthetics of what I paint.  As a conceptual material, paint has immense history embedded within it. I have a desire to explain visually those notions as vignettes into the window of my imagination, it represents time and place and the way the paintings were made.

The resultant work serves as documentation, a lens of politics, history and culture.

I have always been concerned with the 'everything'. However, due to the nature of this overwhelming concept, my approach is to be inspired by and draw subject matter from local surroundings, ideas and research. To understand the constructed or natural landscape, the totality of it and to make sense of that which is beyond our grasp is an enduring concern. A utopian future seems to be less certain, but in its place a more dramatic physicality charged with the energy of change, adaption and time-based consciousness.
