My art practice examines contemporary domesticity. This series is a critique of the internal and often conflicted landscape of the home; understood as a place of refuge and an expression of our individuality. I consider my privilege in having a place to call home and how it has become a site of internment this year, from which I dream of other spaces.
I have explored the home through the medium of oil painting on board, canvas and wood. I utilise subversion, altered angles, still life composition, exaggerated colours and flat space to invite the audience to experience these intimate spaces with me. This series draws particular influence from both the masters of the twentieth century and contemporary artists, such as Prudence Flint, Inès Longevial, David Griggs, Louise Tuckwell, Nick Collerson and Max Berry.
