I have recently graduated with a Fine Art BA (Hons) from the Cambridge School of art at Anglia Ruskin University. I am trying to establish myself as an emerging artist, working towards my dreams and goals as a tiny fish in a large sea. My paintings can be seen as a study of artificial simulations through the exploration of social spaces and their use of industrialised technology. The creation of consumerist social space deliberately aims to manipulate experience and affect visitors through the use of architecture, elaborate interior design and artificial lighting; technology is increasingly present within these social spaces. My work depicts this as a simulation of an experience and socialisation. The compositional elements within the paintings consist of geometric abstraction examined through perspectival and spatial illusion, amplifying the artificial colour harmonies in order to describe the experience of the hyper-real environments within the canvas.
