My paintings explore the themes of memory and absence in relation to error and the human impulse to subvert, self-edit or conceal through erasure and layering.

These subjective mixed-media paintings often reference the neo-realistic films of the post World War two era, and celebrate the background as much as the subject, as they depict frozen moments in time.
