My work is concerned with the display of lines and geometries in and around the natural world and how these spaces are intersected, interfered with and interjected by light. My curiosity of how we experience space and the human need to create boundaries within space is documented in my work. I aim to translate three dimensional spectacles of light and nature into two dimensional works, using the medium of paint and mixed media. How we interpret image and volume varies and this is something that is used to my advantage in my work. I use the idea of interpretation and subjectivity, playing on the human eye, to form geometric studies that have multiple facades, depending on who the observer is. I like to create a paradox with the medium of shape, creating work that encourages the viewer to stop and analyse the piece, questioning the relationship of light and dark, art and architecture and positive and negative. Thus, my practice pushes boundaries of both the built and unbuilt environments. I am ultimately examining the absence of space and the impact that geometry and nature has on this.
