As a visual artist my painting practise leads on from the legacy of Abstract Expressionism in combining traditional and contemporary styles. My works constantly act as devices to communicate the potential possibilities of these experiences by using symbols and gestures. Some of these symbols are conceived as indexical of meanings that I work out on the always-evolving chalkboards that accompany my work.
My works refer to ideas about the relation of ancient cultures to alien civilisation, attempting to capture or explain something of the intense, or sublime. These possible phenomenon and spiritual moments are relived and exploited using my painterly process. The mixed origins of abstraction and conspiracy theories become generated from on-going research where I use historical and contemporary writers, artists, philosophers and theorists to research the sublime and ancient cultures.
