Work Overview

Inspired by the depiction of cloth in Renaissance paintings - movement, vitality and earthiness are captured and distilled within the frame and stillness of the painting. The shades of light and dark are emphasised by the lines and creases where the sun catches its outlines. Where the tactile fabric is inverted, shadows are made darker by the turgid grottos and canyons carved into the tectonic landscape of its folds.
