I look for a space that questions the primary hierarchies within painting. Using the traditional structures of painting: the stretcher bars and the Modernist grid, I seek to question their authority by interrupting their reading. Using the format of the multiple the eye is forced to move, to collect up images in order to make a whole. The generic or clichéd image is used to question how we experience content. Technical and material elasticity in relation to narrative puts into focus the way specific materiality affects how we recognise and decode visual language.
Perhaps all visual experience is an exchange between subjectivity and historical transformation. We do not experience this passively, rather this experience is integrative, we are bonded to these experiences and those around us.
