Dining Table with Mirror is one in an ongoing series of works investigating the hidden human histories behind seemingly insignificant objects. Often ignored, they bear witness to sensuous activity, be it remembered, lived, forgotten, or mythologised. In these modestly scaled works, the depicted objects are presented dislocated from their conventional domestic settings and isolated within an intangible space. The objects appear as unadorned formal arrangements in a painterly restaging of the interrelationship of material, image, object and time.

Dining Table with Mirror was Winner of the Wells Art Contemporary Patron's Award 2020.
