I’m fascinated with everyday history – the lives that have gone before us and been forgotten. Juxtaposing classical images and modern themes, my paintings are my comment on transience. I reference the classical portrait with the often arrogant, invincible gaze of the wealthy landowner – and contrast the contemporary equivalent in the form of the modern day land developer and the fact that prestige, wealth or beauty are still no weapon against time. I’m also exploring the part animals play in human lives – the realities and mythologies. I want my canvases to ask questions and the viewer to find joy in discovering unique and personal answers.
