All my work is based on video journies. For the pixel series I deliberately deconstruct the video until it is a series of pixels which are projected back onto the surface of the painting while I work. The passing series uses one video frame as a spring board. Each painting represents either a split second or a series of moments frozen in paint. I am intrigued by the boundaries between video and painting; between permanence and transience; between the contemporary and the traditional.
