My current practice concerns architecture as an emblematic form. Paintings evolve out of several stages of production, with preparatory drawing, the collection of photographs and the construction of fictitious collaged spaces, in the development of canvases, which are usually large-scale and built up in layers.
Within my most recent work, the titles in numbered lists reflect a categorisation by subject: the city, the house, the museum, the church, the interior, the stadium. Within these, a series of paintings and collages are developed. Whilst functioning as a taxonomy of urban and architectural subjects, the paintings are allowed to adopt varying forms, in terms of the degree of illusionism and the nature of objects described, and spatially, where the descriptive nature of the architectural form is complimented by contrasting use of flatness, perspective or pattern.
Colour registration is a primary concern, along with the process and language of painting, and questions around how architectural language can be utilised within painting and drawing as part of a methodology for representing form and space.
