I find maps inherently interesting as they have an allure that always draws me in to find the familiar and try to define my personal orientation and identification with them.
My current work is a series that features parts of London where I have lived for the past thirty years. In each case they represent some personal event or experience, and for the viewer there is the opportunity to see something different and identify their own personal connection.
In creating the paintings I use a multi layering of collage and paint that create their own texture, visual depth and contrast, obscuring hidden images that invite discovery both to me as I work and ultimately the viewer. The results are paintings that evolve to form their own final state, much as London itself has changed and developed many times over its life.
