About

JUST SO

'An exhibition that is inspired by Rudyard Kipling who created stories for his daughter that had to be told ‘Just So’ -  always in the exact same way. My work explores universal stories that need to be repeated just so. They become modern folklore in a way that resonates, hinting at larger truths – or fake news. These stories often betray an unease with nature, a fear that nature will one day seek its revenge for our casual disregard, that we are on the edge of a precipice, and the kraken is about to rise up from the deep.

My work is mainly figurative, representational and naïve in style. Figures, in the main, appear faceless, extremities undefined. I use movement, physicality and shape to convey emotion, action and narrative. My influences include the work of Fernand Leger, David Hockney and the primitivism employed by Rousseau. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art I have exhibited my work in group and solo exhibitions in London, New York and Los Angeles. In 2015 I was a finalist for the Serco Illustration Prize. 

Drawing is the spiritual heart of many processes in art, from architecture and design to painting and sculpture.  In a world increasingly dominated by digital representation, my practice seeks to explore and raise the profile of the importance of the human connection and fascination with the hand-drawn.'
