Where to go when you want to leave town?

Painting has a way of embellishing reality and turning a moment into something beautifully poetic and dreamlike. These are qualities, which i aspire to achieve within my own paintings. The work is influenced by small observations, fleeting and obsessive thoughts that i feel all deserve a new presence or sense of importance as a painting. I assemble spaces, influenced by a mixture of abstraction and figuration, which often feature flattened or enhanced perspectives. My oil paintings tend to be created from delicate drawings, therefore, many of the oil paintings share a similarly light and fragile aesthetic. This painting called ‘ personal space’ captures a couple who are both enjoying their time together whilst also very much in their own head space. It was their romantic yet very authentic attitude towards one another which really interested me.
