My work is completely concerned with context, process and materials. I make paintings, drawings and collages, often on a very large scale. I use the dark room as an experimental space, making camera less imagery and double exposed 35mm. I use Lo-Fi audio techniques collecting field recordings and glitched samples. The audio is filtered, cut up, reconfigured, sequenced and looped. I have often chosen to use 'poor' materials – for example, dust, cardboard, chalk on blackboards, lead, chocolate, ashes, water and other stuff. I work with discarded found materials collected between home and studio. I make short films that rely on repetition, loops and repeats. I like to give the viewer / audience / student, room to manoeuvre intellectually. I'm not really interested in simply making work that has to fit on a mantle shelf, an office wall, a stage or a commercial white cube space, however, I am interested in engaging with ideas that subvert or possibly compliment those contexts. My work is sometimes intentionally confrontational, sometimes intentionally beautiful. Profanities, congested space, white noise, ugly / beautiful, process led – 'making a mark'. I try to avoid associations with art HIStory.
This is my 'punk rock'.
