This series of paintings depict the melancholy, alienation and detachment that lie behind the glossy veneer of consumerism. The images are clean and precise, while the painting style is physical, loose and expressive.
Through the use of high key, luminous colour the language of fashion and advertising is explored and subverted. The painterly hand references a desire for a return of humanity and spirit to a consumerist world.
"Recent work has been concerned with the power of branding and advertising within contemporary culture and its emphasis on youth and beauty. I have been making large-scale objective depictions of people using supersaturated CMYK colours. The images are monochromatic and painterly, as a means of communicating the counterpoint between consumerism and disaffection".details:Materials: Oil on linen
