I enjoy painting ordinary objects. At first glance they appear plain, but these objects exist in a world of their own ? one that often goes unobserved. The more I look at them the more they reveal something about that world.
Objects can also stand for much more than they seem and I often use them as metaphors to comment on things like solidity and transience, or our contemporary political and social conditions. One of the themes of my work is the way that communication can be misunderstood, or used to deceive, which is why I often paint objects that are wrapped or partially concealed.
