"The notion of the “self” and the fracturing of identity are explored in my paintings through creating locations of familiar unfamiliarity, fears and unknowns. In response, the work hopes to become a journey to establish a relationship with the real. In an effort to acknowledge our use of escapism to deter from the trauma of lack of identity, my paintings delve into how we use sense of place to establish our identity. The work tries to engage with a dissatisfaction with oneself translated through the medium, accompanied by an envy of the material illuminating so much character. The fascination with paint comes with the interlocking of textures, where the painting converses with itself on the surface- an interaction that lacks control and so liberates the material. By presenting my paintings as environments, their purpose is intertwined with notions of identity to recognise the façade of a sense of place."
