My works are a visual diary of my travels in New Zealand and around the world – the way I see and experience these places. They document the iconic and instantly recognisable as well as the odd and interesting. I am fascinated by the back-story – the cultural history behind the well-known images, along with scientific rules and the mechanics of how things work. I explore these ideas within a graphic sensibility and play with scale, depth, text, current and old media, languages, currencies and slang to create multi-layers of meaning – the opportunity for each viewer to find and connect with something different.
I deliberately create scratches, paint drips and weather-beaten marks to add character and a natural look, while using a colour palette that resonates with me at the time.
