From Here to the Wet Six

From Here to The Wet Six is an exploration of hybridisations within painting practice, created in various rooms in and around Bangkok Thailand. Architecture continues to inform my practice, which I sourced from the numerous abandoned billboards scattered along the highways of Thailand whizzing past my bus window, along with other quotidian objects and structures. Deconstructing these forms and reassembling a limited selection of architectural motifs allowed the work to pivot in and around them, creating a call and response approach to the making. Bringing together disparate forms into a cohesive body of work and challenging hierarchies within art materials was expediated by the restrictions placed on me as an artist. In terms of space, materials and location. Consequently, I embraced the limitations, and at some point “Went Digital” to create an imitation or substitution for traditional painting that has been compelled to coexist within the more time-honoured forms.
