My paintings reference sets of photos I have taken with my phone camera of urban and domestic subjects. These paintings are made on surfaces such as cement sheeting, plywood sheeting, masonite board, and Particle board, which I leave more or less exposed. Presented alongside the paintings is also the accumulated rubbish from the production of most of the paintings. The paintings appear as a combination of overlapping impressionistic perspectives with moments of abstraction and symbolism. The various subjects of my photos center around objects and spaces which have significance and which I give significance through the use of paint in the exploration of light, composition, etc. This is done with the aim at expressing or identifying an experience of alienation through the prism of the various objects, spaces, and materials that all make their way into the production of the art work.
