The work is a playful response to architecture, design and visual culture and employs a strict reductive language that references mid and early twentieth century hard edge painting. An earlier graphic design career is reflected in much of the work where the intention is to allude rather than describe; allowing curious forms to materialise within the painting that ultimately explore light, form and space.
