Fine Art - BA (Hons)

My practice concerns painting. Through the process of painting, I aim to scrutinise traditional and ‘Old Master’ painting, and inadvertently their connotations within a historical and contemporary context. This is achieved, in part, through the intentional juxtaposition I create between the surface that I paint on, and the traditional painting techniques and mediums that I use in the construction of figurative imagery. By doing this, I aim to investigate the increasingly ambiguous term: ‘painting’ and challenge pre-conceived notions of what ‘a painting’ can be within a contemporary context.
