Artist Statement:

These works have been painted directly from the nude model. On a formal level they comprise a synthesis of colour and line to describe volume and structure, presenting a counterpoint to contemporary celebrity-driven culture by depicting ordinary people with their myriad physical imperfections. The isolated figure; vulnerable and self-absorbed, is often observed as a foreshortened scape in which peculiar details have been carefully depicted; the asymmetry of a pair of ears, the angle one toe makes with its neighbour, the pull of flesh between finger and thumb, the sideways fall of a breast under its own particular weight.
