ARTIST STATEMENT: -
I have been painting images of newspaper clippings for seven years now, covering subjects such as war, terrorism and cloning.  The use of newspaper recalls certain trompe l’oile 17th century still life. Recently I have been working on an ongoing series of obituaries. They condense a life into a few column inches and a single image – a scrap of newsprint that becomes a heavy token, a memento, even an icon, when rendered in paint. The act of painting and therefore sustained concentration brings a degree of focus and depth to what would otherwise be fleeting moments in the press.
