‘I am a self-taught artist and live in London. In April 2020 my painting Interrupted Recording (1) (2020) was selected to feature as Artist of the Day by AIR Gallery, Manchester. In 2012, I participated in Hoopla, Sugarhouse Studios, London. I am currently partaking in an Artist Residency (online) at Proyectos De Residencia Mexico – The Virtual Residency CDMX.
My most recent paintings comprise a series entitled Interrupted Recordings – their visual pattern is reminiscent of the grooves in an LP or record and how the stylus sometimes misses the grooves in a record as well as jump if it came across a scratch. How the lines of the paint flowed around the surface is interrupted by gaps – these gaps are created by the paint not touching the surface – similar to the stylus disconnect described above. In contrast to how the sides of a painting often go unnoticed, the sides of paintings are treated with similar importance to that of their front – painted ‘grooves’ extend over the edge of the surface. ‘
