My work explores the concept behind portraiture and the human trace. Originally inspired by death masks and their ability to capture the final human form; with the lines and scars mapping the journey of the person, the work is a representation of the threshold between life and death. The forms are frozen in the moment before disappearing into the space that surrounds them, or the moment after they have been shaped from it. The paint, which we see the instant after it has been thrown, symbolises a change of state. It is the spark which begins the life, or the violent action that ends it.
