Statement:
My paintings are a blend of the familiar and unfamiliar. They are figurative and focus on the use of colour. Ghostlike figures occupy poses in a relaxed and familiar family tableau. But their relationship to each other is not one of “easy” familiarity. Rather, a strange distance separates them or is implied through a quasi-transparent barrier. The implication is one of being isolated even in the most intimate of domestic settings. Hints of a “closeness at great distance” are of great importance in my paintings.
