Selection of paintings
2015 - present

...

 

Painting is where the formal language of my moving image work emerges from, taking on intense colour saturation as a means to create heat and refer to particularity of place. It is a medium that offers my practice materiality and a different time code to that of digital video. I approach the movement of imagery across both media as a form of translation, curious about what details are lost or gain visibility and the different cultural connotations underlined by each medium.
