Artist's painting practice is concerned with states of flux and impermanence, furthered by research into spatial and temporal concerns in a comparison of social and urban timeframes. His process-led, abstract painting practice employs a tempered gestural language where fluidity is a defining material concern and the process of erasure has equal importance to the intuitive application of paint. This examines states of presence and remembrance by exploring a tension between control and chance.
