STATEMENT My paintings and constructions are part of a constant process of research that is concerned with depicting space (real and illusory), framing, repetition, ambiguity, dynamism and colour. I have recently begun to reveal, conceal, substitute and destroy imagery in an effort to produce a contemporary palimpsest.
