2011 – present
This ongoing group of works on paper are based on collages and continue to work with removal, repositioning and subsequent adjacent to large areas of colour. These backgrounds difficult to discern place into question the depth of field and the expectation of focus as a way of directing the viewers attention to the subject. The subject removed one unsure of where to look.
The illogical depth of field This upsets the perceived hierarchy of foreground (in focus) to background (out of focus) and creates unsettling abstractions with only tenuous links to figuration. The seemingly random combinations of bits and pieces of these settings in my work present disorienting realities.
