In my work paint is the tool I use to speak out about the problems of power and balance in society. Recent paintings are attempting to create a conversation about current issues that are filtered and by-passed throughout the media. Imagery that depicts these issues is altered through painting and addition of text. This involves using minimal colours and leaving the painting at an almost unfinished stage. The story becomes concealed but the universal gestures are made more apparent. This gives a new light to the subject, which allows the viewer find a closer relation to the image, and fill the gaps with their own ideas and beliefs.
