Fundamental to my work is the tension between the construct of painting, representation versus presentation, surface versus illusion and stasis versus experience - experience of being in a place, experience of painting and of seeing the painting.

Within my work I am struggling to resolve the polarized notions of Landscape and post-Conceptual painting practice. This body of recent work explores notions of space, through the study of early Renaissance painting and the work of artists during the International Gothic period. In such works there is a visceral conflict between surface decoration and the formulation of linear perspectival illusion. The paintings from Paulo Uccello's Battle of San Romano are of specific interest, as they also respond to time -dawn, noon and dusk as each of the trilogy map the battle out.

The group of paintings gathered here combine the aspects of knowledge gained from the study of Italian painting with ongoing explorations of the landscapes of Wales on motorbike and by van and in particular the effects of light on colour at dawn and dusk.
