Datganiad yr artist:

"Painting for me involves a lot of watching and waiting, hoping it will work out and become something that will make me feel calm and at peace with the world. The dystopian place doesn't interest me, but ambiguity does, and being playful with space.
Until recently I called myself a landscape painter, but I realised that this was misleading. Everything is landscape. I like a painting to have aspects of landscape and still life.  The object placed in a space in an integrated surface. 
My painting is about integrating the materials with the subject so they feel like they are the same thing.  A kind of dance between mark and meaning.

I'm with Susan Sontag, when she talked about being against interpretation of art.  A painting must hold you in a kind of enchanted moment when your attention doesn't wander. A moment before grammar kicks in.

My current work has involved going back to earlier days when it was more about still life and interiors. Now I want to bring everything together, inside and outside. When I was a student I was obsessed with Morandi, looking to his later work where landscape seemed to merge with the still life, and all sense of scale was lost.

I never want to forget that a painting is an object, When you place it in a space, on a wall, then that space is changed. A painting must change how you relate to the space around it, and how you feel in that space."
