Tangible
12th March
17th April 2017

Recently I have found myself feeling uneasy about the rapid progress of the digital revolution. We live in an age where seemingly all music, literature and film is just a few key-strokes away. It exists in the ether, as insubstantial as a ghost. But not so long ago, our cultural artefacts had a concrete, physical reality. We are tactile creatures and I think the experience of culture is poorer for a lack of physical connection.

Maybe it’s also about nostalgia and where I find myself in life. Tangible evolved from narrative interiors I was painting. Placing paperbacks on a bedroom duchess was a means of hinting at personal experience without having to explicitly tell that story. These new paintings may be described as Still-Lifes, which by their nature also act as memento-mores.
