Catalogue Note

"My self-reflexive stance originated from the problem of what to paint, or rather how to justify it to myself. The technique of copying a photograph, rather than implying an interest in the ‘photo-real’, was simply a paring down to the bare bone of a practice. What emerged out of this discipline was surprisingly expansive and referential."
