Over the last number of years I have been examining how the linear structure of landscape painting can respond to both external and internal landscapes. In my most recent work, I have been moving away from this focus on deliberately rigid and regimented structures within my work and have begun to develop an approach to my work that seeks a dissolution of these boundaries, and which pursues a perspective of the eye on its surrounding environment.
Within this context, I have been exploring creating a panoramic perspective to my work, aiming to develop a concentrated, claustrophobic sensibility. This current approach aims to look more intently at the dialogue between humans and the persistent urban realism that envelops them. As each component is propelled to component, they begin to influence one another. Hard edges with concrete, architecture, man, and machine merge into blended essences. Constantly changing associations are inevitably released in these environments, and the observer is gradually pulled into the process of continuous transformation, in a melting pot of man, modernity, and dynamics.
