Wall, 2011.

The past few months seem to have been occupied with domestic spaces- moving home and painting images of interiors.

At the beginning of July 2010 I put together a solo exhibition for AND/OR, a space on Mare Street in Hackney.  It was part of a series of one-week one-person exhibitions at the gallery.

Cottages, 2009.

Following on from previous work, the paintings were again based on suburbs and small towns in Canada and the UK, familiar places.  My path back to these neighbourhoods was through research into local scandal, disappearances, crime; events seldom spoken of.  I suppose the paintings originate from a conflation of memory, document and rumour.

Many thanks to George Unsworth and Owen Pidcock for making the show happen.


Nothing Like Something Happens Anywhere was a group exhibition that happened at the end of 2009 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The venue, RUM26, is a studio and project space that hosts a variety of events.

The work needed to be easily (and cheaply) transportable, so my solution was a series of small oil paintings  on card. The whole group fit in and A4 folder, and then were simply pinned to the wall.
