Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
My work explores themes of truth. The truth about painting. The truth about surface. The truth about making and the process that evolves around that. Mistakes are made and left on view. The rawness of the material is just as active as the paint floating or sinking on/into the surface. I am intrigued by repetition of mark making in all its forms, from the contour line of a figure to the patterns of textiles recreated with paint or the sewing of wool through and around the surface. Colour is the focus point of my work, understanding how these combinations melt together or scream in separation. Creating space and openness in the work lets each object be itself. There is evidence of traces by previous mark-marking, revealing the changes made during the painting process. In this way, I examine how a thought process can be realized in paint and form.
