“Painting on mass produced, printed, usually photographic images is fundamental to my practice. Taking what already exists as my starting point, I then appropriate the image by painting directly on top of it to reinvent it.

The printed surface is usually glossy, a perfect even finish, but the paint disrupts this surface, leaving only a shadow of what was previously there. By carefully obliterating areas of the original printed image, I zoom in on key elements, directing the attention of the viewer to areas I find compelling, and in doing so, a new narrative evolves.”
