My work explores orientation: psychological, physical, and in space and time. I consider the absurd juxtapositions of modern life: highspeed travel, satellite and the internet, the banality of advertising,

local story, personal mythologies. I am interested in wild urban places – the cracks in the pavement, boundaries and marginal space. I am affected by layers of peeling paint, creeping lichen, distressed billboards and discarded shopping lists. I record the entangled trajectories of birds, animals, plants and people. The paintings collapse and fold these themes. We are near and far, above and below, now and then. Or somewhere in between.
