Things are not always what they seem to be. Through simple quirks of colour and composition, everyday scenes of people and places reveal themselves as dreamlike memories, not quite recognisable but familiar enough that they hover on the edge of being a remembered place and something dredged up from the imagination. Glowing colours saturate the images, distorting a sense of time and place, enticing and beguiling the viewer into a place that they recognise and remember as their own.
These new paintings continue to explore my ongoing fascination with the simplicity of the overlooked: people, places, light and colour. I find inspiration in everyday scenes that are often lost in the deluge of contemporary visual culture.
