My recent work has been influenced by a scholarship to Florence, where I researched the enduring contradiction of painting as both ornamentation and fine art, through an exploration of religious and fresco paintings. In my work I combine the languages of formalism, symbolism, figuration and decoration, and play at the boundary between representation and abstraction. I am deeply invested in the craft of painting and the chemistry(/alchemy) of its materials.
