My paintings are the result of multiple layering of oil paint. My work is extremely procedural and pragmatic. As each coat slowly dries, another is applied. Some of the paintings are then left untouched, whilst others are sanded down through all layers to the gesso itself revealing a pixelated effect. The sanding is an excavation or an autopsy of the painting itself. I am interested in the notion of depicting "white noise" in some way - as an expression of a void. THe aspect ration of these paintings is 4:3 which represents old TV sets.
I am currently studying an MLitt in fine art practice - painting at Glasgow School of Art.
