Diversions series statement

Diversions is a series of paintings that explore the themes of isolation and change. This work investigates my perception of the suburban world; how contemporary humans exist in relation to their environments whether this is in confrontation or peace. Environmental concerns and the ever changing physical world are inspirations for these invented spaces. My memories and personal history play a vital role in the creation and visualisation of these narrative paintings. I use narrative to confront identity, question the ideal, and toy with expectation.
