Painter : analogue/digital creative wanderer.

I am a visual artist focusing on painting and works on paper. I make paintings that examine the fluid nature of memory, time, place, and identity. My works have an emphasis on multi-layered systems, color, and process.

As a painter and lifelong urban dweller, I'm interested in aspects of memory and time via observations of the continual evolution of the urban landscape: observation of layers of over-written, buffed and rewritten graffiti, together with gentrification and the "overwriting" of the old with the new form the starting point for many of my multi-layered parings.

My work is represented in the U.S. by the Bridgette Mayer Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, I am seeking exhibition and representation opportunities in the U.S. and abroad.

The title of this painting comes from a song by The Cure that I like a lot. It was first exhibited at the Four Seasons Hotel-Philadelphia from June, 2014-January, 2015. It is currently available through the Bridgette Mayer Gallery (Philadelphia).
