My work looks at the tactility of paint in its most original form. Understanding the physicality of paint on canvas allows real art to be made and my perception is directed onto the canvas. It is about engaging with the surface of the canvas. By this I mean understanding the materiality of the mediums and then engaging in creating art work, so judging each brush stoke by the previous mark made, and then continuously repeating this process. I explore tactility or facture, as Benjamin Buchloch describes it with reference to Gerhard Richter.
