My work deals with the human condition, emotions and narratives. I find comfort in the figure, as it represents emotions through its movement and shape that explain stories words cannot tell. Each movement and line becomes something abstract, expressive and beautiful. I like to use a abundant variety of media, through sculpture, painting and printmaking, using the juxtaposition of abstract and expressive mark making, I narrate tales of social, emotional and political tales using lines, colour and the figure, explaining everyday experiences. I am inspired by perception and how it creates a new narrative within each piece, how every work of art is a conversation between the viewer and the art work.
Artists’ works that I draw inspiration from include Francisco De Goya’s series ‘Los Caprichos’ and the ‘Disasters of War’. Auguste Rodin’s ‘Gates of Hell’ and his Figurative Drawing have influenced the development of my drawing. William Blake’s figures, prints, poetry and theories have stimulated my printmaking development and drawing. Contemporaries that have motivated my works are Jess’s paste-ups particularly ‘Narkosis’, with his working with the human figure and compositions, as well as Australian artists, Darren Swies and Gordon Bennett’s works dealing with search to find ones identity within society.
