About me and my involvement in AA2A:

I am a recent graduate of De Montfort University, Leicester. My studio practice is largely based around process-driven painting. My lastest paintings are liberated from the wall, and are constructed in a way which invites the viewer into the space. The work questions the nature of painting, and confronts the notion that paintings should be pictorial illusions. The arrangement of my compositions are handled like that of a canvas-based painting, in which the spaces of air and architecture between the objects have a similar role of negative spaces. Instead of being an accumulation of brush strokes, there is an accumulation of physical objects. During my time here, I have exhibited alongside my like-minded peers at the local venues Firebug and Orange Tree. I exhibited at the Cyprus College of Art as part of the DMUglobal scheme.
