I specialises in the technique of scanography, resulting in work that is both experimental and spontaneous. With my childhood passion lying in painting, I have been combining these two elements to create work outside of the social normality.
Using the scanner as both a camera and a canvas, I question the way art is formed and approach the idea of creating art in a new light. My use of the scanner in this way is unique in this area and it helps me to stand out from other artists in this medium. My practice also allows for the viewer to form their own explanations about the work and to stimulate their imaginations into response.
My current practice is exploring the nature of Fluids, examining the reactions that occur when different fluids combine, but also the dynamic and vibrant patterns that naturally form. I am interested in the use of fluids within the creation of a piece of work but also in the creation process itself. I want to bring the messy, fragile yet beautiful aspects from my experiments into the public environment; something that is stereotypically hidden from view within a white-walled gallery. When I work with fluids I am reminded of our natural fluid origins and the importance water has in our daily lives. My work is more like realism than abstract art, as I am utilising a medium that contains the very essence of our existence and I aim to play on this aspect in peoples subconscious.
