The work explores a person jostling with contemporary ideals and thoughts, figuring out its own reason and purpose. The figures and forms created not only explore the given surrounding they exist in but also confront the lineage of painting that investigates the boundary between figuration and abstraction. Underpinning this is a reflection on how restless the state of society is.
When finished the imagery makes its own sense or reason for existence. This reason provokes so much excitement and demands energy and time from the viewer posing the question of the hold iconography has on us now and in history. This highlights the importance of the relationship between artist and medium and the role ‘response’ has in creating art. The medium in many ways is using the artist to develop as it seems fit.
