BETWEEN THE WALLS
6 TO 24 NOVEMBER 2019
These paintings and studies are the continuation of a theme I started two years ago centred around the domestic interior. They are hybrid paintings, part reality and part fiction; part drawing and part painting. I use traditional oil painting implements and methods combined with an airbrush.The scenes are a mixture of images sourced online and spaces composed from my imagination. I want to make paintings that feel like another world but are also familiar.
