About

With this series I continue my practice of alluding to historical painting styles and themes as a means of prompting various contextual associations. I began by referencing portrait painting - specifically the genre paintings of Frans Hals - gradually merging this with allusions to other historic painting, figure painting, and up to the precursors of early modernism. I am aware of the precarious nature inherent in employing obsolete painting styles - particularly in figurative works from live female models. It is through this subject matter however that I attempt to imbue these familiar strategies with contemporary vitality and coherence.
