Artist Statement

Pain

Borrowing from my monochromatic artistic signature, the artwork captures the pulse of pain; the intense and subdued throbbing. Out of a dark absorbing background, a vulnerable and fragile figure emerges. The vibrations and waves of the individual's emotions ripple into the surrounding atmosphere.
My works comprise of emotive portraiture, they are centred around themes of silence and introspection, an approach I observe in order to create my art.
