Spatial Order III






Pen, ink and gouache on paper.

The continuation of these geometric figures has become somewhat of an obsession. Many rough drawings are made prior to the identification of a new form. 

These works on paper have stimulated an evolution in my approach to painting.

TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP









TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP is an exhibition of work made in collaboration with Ciaran Begley, and Consuelo Cavaniglia.

The work was developed both individually and in dialogue. Consuelo and I working on painted book-like forms, and Ciaran producing the folded plywood structures.

It has been a great experience working collaboratively, and the outcomes of the work have highlighted our shared concerns of geometry, structure and space.

TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP will be on show until 18/ 10/ 04 at Archive_ 5 Eliza Street Newtown.

Quotients and Remainders


Ink and acrylic on board, with fluorescent gaffing tape.

This painting was made from the offcuts of a previous painting on board, and being a fragment of the larger form, it's edges follow the same underlying geometries.

Working with these offcuts is a process similar to collage, with the pieces there ready to be arranged. This allowed for a sense of spontaneity and experimentation, that resulted in this open ended, unexpected outcome.

Video 1:01




iPhone 4.

These short experimental videos rely on the ubiquitous presence of my mobile phone.

Having the phone with me, almost at all times, allows me to record phenomena as I see it with a casual immediacy.

By continuing in this practice, and imposing a vague set of rules (pertaining to movement, framing, and duration), the necessary time or opportunity is given for a sensibility to emerge.
