Like many of my generation I grew up playing video games, reading comics and watching Hollywood films. I attempt to recreate on canvas the drama and suspense these mediums convey to the viewer.
My work is primarily based around the figure and alluding to the sinister. I aim to create scenes in which something is about to happen or has just happened, the moment of consideration before, or after an action. Unlike a comic or a film in which the structure is controlled tightly so to create one reading of an image, I aim to create images which allow for multiple interpretations. The works are intended to have a sense of ambiguity, and allow for enough space so the viewer can draw their own narratives and conclusions.
I try to combine a wide range of techniques and mediums - acrylic, pencil, charcoal, oil, aerosol and ink. My work brings aspects of street art, comic imagery and drama, and traditional figurative art together onto one canvas. (Image courtesy Ed Cryer)
