Artist's statement: -
My interest in 'Chromophobia' through colour, detail and 'decoration' has enabled me to create a practice that allows these specifics to culminate.
The new works hope to discuss the issues of the apparent rejection of colour and detail in contemporary art practice and invite the viewer to consider a different
approach to the subjec of painting. I hope to expose my audience to the other side of what normally would be deemed 'decorative' through works that derive from colour and detail.
