In this body of work I try to create a disjuncture in space and time. Images are painted and then over-painted rather like a filmic sequence. The final painting embodies all these permutations and the protagonists are left in an archetypal pose referencing the ‘still’ chosen for the front of a video box.
At certain points in life the future seems so unsure that living in the present is the only thing to hang on to. The characters in this series are frozen in a moment in time when their lives hang in the balance.
