Dark urban portraits are shaped, stabbed, scratched and scrawled. Sporadic energy and violent brush strokes overlap half erased layers and take on new tortured forms.
Graffiti-like strokes surface into view, fragments of old torn paste ups reveal damaged souls lurking beneath. The work amounts to a form of Abstract Expressionism with a raucous energy of the streets where past and present violently collide in a new demonic language.
These abstract portraits are shot through with suggestions and glimmerings of recognisable form. They investigate the notions of time and of experience and find a tension between exuberance and melancholy.
