Introduction

b. 1978 in Yorkshire, now based in east London.

I am currently developing a series of works based upon images of mushroom clouds. Combining both oil paintings and silverpoint drawings, while still small, these new pieces all differ in size and format.

The first drawing I've completed - Able, is a depiction of the Atom bomb test that took place on Bikini Atoll on 1st July 1946 by the USA.

I'm aiming for a quiet sense of unease, to harness the beauty of the media, capturing ginormous fleeting moments of horror in a consuming & meticulous way.

 

I am a member of xvi collective and collaborate as half of performance duo - Harris and Clarke.
