95% of brain activity occurs within the unconscious mind. I am continually searching for ways to access and explore this space.
Through an introspective process of self-discovery my practice is equally about the desire for excavation but also seeks to repel the same insight through escapism.
Engaging with the overlap between psychology and neurology as a starting point, I adopt liberated self-expression in paint, embracing an instinctive and impulsive approach to image making. The multitude of cohesive and combative layers throughout my work confront the complexity of the human unconscious. Each piece becomes a documented glimpse of the activity here and a component of a colossal irrefutable investigation which is ultimately seeking connectivity with the audience through contemplation of our shared unconscious.
I am searching for an abstract sensory vocabulary that activates and celebrates this under-estimated part of the brain that is often taken for granted but is crucial to our survival.
