Pick. Pour. Peel. I use thick, wet, malleable resin and pigments as a painting medium, physically lifting rich layers of urban environments, I call the process “Peeling”. More than just castings, Peelings are both additive and subtractive at the same time, Peelings extract stories, physically embedding and capturing histories from the surfaces of the places I Peel.

 

I see the works as collaborations between myself and the urban environment; although I plan my compositions, I am always surprised when I “peel” the works to see what the site holds onto, and what it lets go of.

About Me

IMG_5508.jpg

As a child of the 80s I loved playing in vacant and forbidden industrial sites. My affinity for these spaces only grew as I threw myself into Sydney’s early 90’s rave culture. While most people overlook these derelict spaces, they continue to hold a special place in my heart. There is so much character in the decayed urban geometry, abstract textures and fascinating compositional beauty of these and other forgotten spaces.
