A lifelong fascination with bands has more or less defined my relationship with imagery.
The paintings and drawings I make are indebted to fandom and collective identification,
they begin to make departures into the nature of spectatorship, the sharing of knowledge

What is it about your studio space that inspires you?

It's an island that you can go to where anything can happen.

What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?

Oil and acrylic paint, its complexity never fails to surprise me.

If you could only have one piece of art in your life, what would it be?

A 'Dirty Words' photo scultpure by Gilbert and George

If you weren´t an artist, what would you be doing?

Actor

What are your favourite places besides your studio?

Restaurants, bars, bed.
