My practice focuses primarily on spatial ambiguity, an interest that I have been engaging with for some time, to construct abstract paintings which toy with interpretation and perception. I am fascinated by relationships between three-dimensional and two dimensional space, colour and rhythm, and figure and ground; as a result, forms, often mined from a variety of sources, including architecture and sculpture, are transformed and distorted. With these principles in mind, I aim to create art that distils both intrigue and visual pleasure.
