Still Pictures is the collective title of a new series of work started in 2017 & continuing into 2018. I grab images from Film & Television, I cut and stick fragments of these images together with fragments from personal photographs & make collages from them. I then laminate these collages, this provides me with a distancing and a change in colour and form using this method allows me to reassess the content of the complex images, I can then develop the images further on the canvas.

By placing the images in a new context I gain the possibility for a re-evaluation of the narrative content. There are a large number of paintings in this series, they have developed a rather dark and mysterious aspect, this reflects a general feeling of uncertainty and disquiet that is common in British society today. There is hope but there is also a sadness.
