From the artist:
Inspired by my own experiences growing up on the Pepys (a brutalist high-rise council estate in Deptford, south London), my current practice investigates dystopian themes and ideas associated with British housing estates. These experiences are at the heart of my work and I am interested in exploring my working class roots and the urban context that I grew up in and striving to understand how this has affected my visual aesthetic and behaviour as an artist. I am very much interested in the notion of a city and how they affect our relationships with each other and the environment we live in. I want my work to have a visceral quality and rather than render an image in paint my process is an exploration in letting the medium take over and create works that I would find it very difficult to recreate.
