This series of paintings are situated within a larger practice that encompasses collage and photography, in which the artist draws from encounters with random objects and spaces. In the resulting paintings everything is presented on the same plane, evoking a personal intimacy of complex associations animated by feelings, perceptions and visions of his surroundings. They point to the question of whether painting is an instrument for the creation of the image, or a mere pretext for the pictorial exercise. A typical painting aligns an afternoon in the garden and the carcass of an animal (Handsaw, 2009), the event is one where experience and memory become spliced to the point of indecipherability. Figurative scenes are modelled on a hybridisation of spaces both real and imaginary, while narratives evade the logics of illustration to become vague and strikingly subjective.
