About me

Industry Arts
Location Plymouth College of Art, Devon, United Kingdom
Introduction My practice incorporates painting, drawing, sound and, most recently, writing. It engages ideas of space/place and their subsequent interactions. Space is a key concern: The work often referencing site, location, urban/suburban contexts, and through visual forms that are more pertinent to spatial and architectural concerns. I particularly like to play with the dissonance between Fine Art and Architectural practices and their visual languages, exploiting their surreal collisions. In other work I may focus on the constraints of the gallery wall, the ‘place/less’ or ‘context/less/ness’ of the work by experimenting with concepts of display and the ‘frame’. Teaching interests include contemporary theories of art and design; painterly abstraction; Surrealism, architectural and spatial design; Specific research interests incorporate Painting practices, research practices in art and architectural theory and context. Current research activity is writing and editing a project which will culminate in the publication of a book on the society and politics of architecture and how this might engage with concepts of place, dwelling, technology, nature and birthright.
