Artist Statement

When Wile E Coyote painted a tunnel on to a wall, he hoped the Roadrunner would crash and die. However to the Coyote’s surprise, the Roadrunner continues flawlessly in to the painting, unharmed.


 


The notion of creating a space, or pseudo-reality, is a current interest within my practice, particularly focusing on landscapes. These spaces however, are simultaneously created and destroyed from a constant reality check taking place through the reveal of material, placement of found objects, and the raw, perhaps naïve approach to making.


 


In much the same way Who Framed Roger Rabbit creates a blur between watching a film or cartoon, I hope to make work with an ambiguous stance between coming and going, reality and imagination, display and studio.
