In response to an exercise i decided to look at the works of John Brennan, specifically his untitled piece from 2012. I was drawn to the use of a very minimal pallet and his use of found images taken out […]

I am interested in the way in which Gerhard Richter created a vast number of ‘overpainted’ photographs. These are categorised into groups such as ‘self portraits’ and ‘family’. Each colour photograph has been overpainted with oil paint, and simply titled […]

After researching Michael Landy’s Breakdown, primarily for my dissertation, I have become interested in unpicking everyday objects. I found the processes Landy used to order, catalogue, destroy and document all of his possessions intriguing. I especially was interested in how he kept […]
I have been thinking about the idea of palimpsests, with visible traces of earlier writing and layers scratched into the surface of a wax tablet. I find it interesting to think about the traces of history left visible on the […]

I took part in a collaborative project with other students called Tearing up the Past and this involved taking old coloured images primarily of religious artworks from art magazines and altering them to create a new image. I experimented with […]
Most days whilst I’m working on a study, I often get asked ‘Why biro?’, and honestly? I’m not too sure. I’ve been drawing with biro pens for the last 5 years, and I find it utterly satisfying looking back on […]
In Saltillo I met with local artists and art students from The University of Coahuila, we visited the train tracks and I held a short workshop where I introduced my working processes. During this workshop I was shown areas of […]
