Notes


About 

Painting’s capacity to record observations of the visual world, but always with a subjective tint, is the foundation of my practice. My work explores intimacy in the home environment, and how emotions and sensations can be shown through images. Recently I have been fascinated by the bedside and the feelings experienced at times between waking and sleeping. Potentially mundane moments can take on otherworldly, or uncanny qualities, tinted by an personal gaze. 

Education 

BA History of Art - University of Warwick (2021), Graduate Diploma in Fine Art - Royal College of Art (2023) In 2024 I will begin an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

The colour crimson has become a particular fascination of mine. It holds a wide range of associations from violence and heat, to desire and fondness. In my most recent body of work, I have used it to represent bodily heat in the cool night, considering the verb “to crimson”, i.e. to blush, and the intimacy that entails. I want to capture some of what it feels to lie in bed and the sensations felt during the transition from waking to sleeping. The body feels heavy, limbs droop, and cheeks feel warm against cool cotton sheets. 

You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
