In response to DOLPH’s brief for Sluice2017, I have curated my last two years on the Turps Studio Programme. The exhibition combines a selection of images and objects to be looked at whilst listening to a self-made audio guide. Weaving fragments of the artist’s thoughts and observations together with excerpts of literature and music, the guide will take the viewer on a walk through the space culminating in a display of painting.
By reflecting upon influences behind the work, I aim to reveal my practice and processes and encourage its origins and outcomes to be questioned. What drives a painter to make their work and how does this work manifest itself?
