The fluidity of paint is used to explore one moment becoming another, allowing boundaries between figures and their environment to break down. The patterns emerging from the photographed screen in both image and surface interference can let people begin to take shapes of animals or ghosts, or merge with the curtains.

Subjects range from family home videos to You’ve Been Framed, Hollywood films and tv dance contests and are photographed in motion, allowing the screen to become a kind of landscape. There’s an intuitive selection process that reflects personal or emotional memories – images relating to moments of falling over, holding on, being at parties, swimming or dancing dominate, with figures in flux between representation and abstraction.

Painting becomes a way to merge the physicality and consciousness of a world filtered through both screens and physical experience.
