When walking through the city and faced with numerous images fighting to catch my attention, I am very rarely interested by the adverts themselves.  What catches my eye are the torn layers, the traces of the previous adverts that have been glued up and just as quickly dismissed, either being ripped down or covered by the next.  

An interest in marks left by the past, and how we make sense of this history while still allowing the present to overwrite aspects of it, plays a key part in the development of my practice.   Combining these ideas with a strong interest in blurring the boundaries between paint, print and sculpture are how these most recent works came about.
