WIRE ACT

SAINT JOHN ARTS CENTRE, 2016

For Wire Act, I drew ideas from negative spaces and overhead wires in urban environments. I used wire, nails and other found materials to connect one painting to the other, mirroring the ubiquitous overhead lines that bind seemingly disconnected structures in our cities.

On the Grid

2015

This work is visually influenced by planimetric urban maps and neighbourhood planning, the idea of ‘starting over‘ in a cramped urban environment - whitewashed graffitied walls, razed buildings - as well as the sometimes haphazard use of space in an area that is constantly in motion and flux.

Urban Spaces

2014

Artist Statement:

I am drawn to the transient elements of urban culture, like graffiti, construction sites, cranes, scaffolding and tankers – things that move in and out of the urban landscape. These moving elements reflect the changing and movable nature of urban identity itself. Architect Wes Wilson sees cities as “field[s] of accumulated meanings...[T]hey are undoubtedly an accretion of materials, of matter which is susceptible to processes of change.” I visually interpret this definition of urban space, (re-)creating a field of ‘accumulated meanings’ through the physical application of materials, built over time on the canvas, each layer a temporary interpretation of the landscape.
