Featured Artists:

“For this new series of paintings, I have placed romanticised cityscapes in high contrast alongside tattered postcards. Nostalgic stills from a luminescent past which seem strangely familiar yet eerily distant. I use a palette of cross processed Kodachrome in order to create drama and atmosphere, a work that appears ‘half remembered’.”

“I was glued to the television as a child and often use film stills to create my work. The postcards I stumbled across in second hand shops and they seemed like they were already little works of art. This use of what I call ‘second hand’ imagery are just the tools I use in order to obtain the real goal of creating a work of art that carries the drama and atmosphere of an experimental new wave film.”

“I collage together these little vignettes of postcards, films and photography in order to combine memory, dreams and fantasy into a finished artwork.”
