My paintings aim to explore the world through varied collated source materials either ‘collaged’ or grouped together. They consider our domesticated vs primitive identities through our relationship with the natural world, the internet, and each other.
I collect images from the internet, the news, television, and take my own photographs. These collections and the way they're selectively juxtaposed may build up a picture of how we see ourselves. Or perhaps they build a picture of how an alien species or distant civilisation may see us.
Key points of inspiration are science fiction/fact, religion, conspiracy theories, mythology, game shows, internet forums, animal behaviour, human psychology, feral children and new-build houses, utopia, Venus, cartoons, prehistory, and climate change.
