Artist of the Week - 6th July
My text pieces and utopian abstract painted forms reveal a desire for a universal unifying order, the disembodied expressions of the texts meaning to instil in the viewer the idea of a greater potential of society, not accepting the death of the age of honest indignation. The work uses literary devices and turns, changing tone from piece to piece – from cynical to revolutionary, poetic and political, and at times questioning the function of art itself – but always trying to rise above the rabble. There is also an importance placed upon the multiplicity of meaning, with the works intending to present a certain level of ambiguity. Effort is made in seeming at once both direct and vague, with no single piece having one single meaning or connotation.
