I make paintings and works on paper that combine found imagery with text, abstract shapes and figurative line drawings to create new and unexpected readings between seemingly unrelated visual elements. My work takes as reference material mundane and instantly recognisable imagery, often associated with stock photography or advertising. Through a labour intensive and highly detailed process of re-drawing or painting I attempt to pause and slow down on these everyday images, allowing unexpected connections and coincidences to come forth in the work.k.
