'Archiver' continues my interest in unstable composition – paintings which respond to the contemporary world of tech, design, architecture and manufacture with a strong discordant aesthetic charge. I'm aiming for work which hovers somewhere between playfulness and calamity – the elements jostling with each other for dominance in a dynamic and fluid situation. Within this painting I set myself the restriction of not allowing any of the primary rectangular elements to overspill beyond the edge of the picture area – creating a joyously precarious pile of elements which are contained and constrained – the edge of the picture area therefore being inherent to the composition.

In my painting I aim to walk a precarious but playful path along boundaries: between object and product, digital and analogue, flat and physical, design and art, work and play. I’m aiming to find a response as a painter working in a digital age. Dividing my creative output between design and an evolving contemporary artist practice, my design background has influenced the development of my visual language, which seeks to marry dynamism and friction with the beauty and imperfection of the contemporary world. My pieces are generally painted on board or wood panels – I often build paintings from separate panels which are arranged and re-arranged during the process until I feel the composition works. Using separate elements and being open to change during the making process is an important strategy for me and helps keep possibilities open – it's quite common for me to invert or re-order elements many times, so that the final painting ends up radically changed from my original sketches. Many of my paintings are box mounted – the depth of this boxing allowing the works to be elevated beyond the realm of flat painting to become something more crafted and tactile. I'm interested in the potential contradiction of responding to the fast-paced contemporary world with an older, slower technology – paint. But the marks left by my brush on the work's surface which are discernible on close inspection are important signifiers of the possibilities which painting still holds to respond to our present times.
