My work is heavily influenced by my perceptions of the people around me, as well as my introspection, research, and observations. As an avid observer, I paint poetry that bears witness to my current time and situation.
I try to give the mundane a larger meaning. More often than not, very simple, everyday tasks assist me in delving deeper into a person's psychology. The quality of being present in reality but not present in activity. My work is based on figurative realism, but I instil a sense of detachment in my figures to reflect the post-covid contemporary relationships.
My goal is to bring the subtle emotions, tones, gestures, and actions to the surface for all to see.
While painting, I purposefully focused on visual accuracy and aesthetics. My work has recently shifted more toward experimentation with form, colour, and concept.
