“Thus one dreams of a painting without truth, which, without debt and running the risk of no longer saying anything to anyone…”
“…it’s enough to say: abyss and satire of the abyss.” Jacques Derrida, The Truth in Painting, 1987
I seek a post real [non-objective,concrete, formal, abstract] approach to image making. Generally employing the use of photography, paint, light, sound, architecture and architectural-object construction to realise projects. Involved primarily in experimental objective/non-objective painting and site-specific work.
