Painting’s capacity to record observations of the visual world, but always with a subjective tint, is the foundation of my practice. My recent work explores memories and sensations experienced in the moments before sleep. For me this hour is one of heightened emotion, where past experiences are replayed and mingle with sensations of heat and dis/comfort felt in bed in the present.

 

Alizarin crimson has become a particular fascination and initially referenced the rose tint of a fond gaze, or the red undertones in faded analogue photographs. However, more recently I have used it to show bodily heat in the cool night. Considered as both a noun and a verb, i.e. 'to crimson', it represents a blush and the intimacy and vulnerability that entails.
