Mono print and ghost print on paper

Graphite on paper

In my work I am interested in colour and form; I use mono printing as a preliminary stage of exploring these elements and to work through and inspire future paintings. The printing process allows me to work quickly as I am able to wipe away and alter the oil paints easily on the metal plate. I have found this has opened up a new way of painting for me which is much more fluid and organic. My figurative work has a unified sense to it, my figures recede into the background and this creates an unsettling flat perspective. I am often inspired by found photographs, particularly photo journalism, because by completely detaching an image from its story, a disjointed and surreal scene can be invented.
