Welcome to Paradise (drawings), mixed media, 2014
"The construct of the advertising image, and it’s power to create false longing in the spectacle is what fuels my practice. I am interested in the seductive illusion of the commercial dream- inevitably hollow but drawing the viewer in. Evaluating questions of the picturesque and idyll, my recent paintings combine tropical travel brochure imagery with elements of the overlooked, mundane reality of human presence. The artificial paradise breaks the perfect media image: creating an obvious fakery as empty as an advertisement’s promise."
