The Hypnotist

2020 - 120x120 cm oil on canvas.

'The Hypnotist' commemorating the George Hicks Contemporary prize. This large figurative work is an unusual blend of narratives, at once historical delights of Royals, Egyption Tombs and authority figures that arc into questions of what makes humans susceptible to suggestion in contemporary times.  Who is hypnotising who here? The scale, composition and delicately layered paint are executed with expertise and a sense of spontaneity. The unfinished patterns are reminiscent of the decorative mark making of Klimt and the surrealist use of the eye; the mirror, protector and window.

The Proposal

2020 - 160x160 cm oil on canvas.

The Proposal is a kaleidoscopic scene depicting the many different versions of who you could grow to be, or something similar like everyone you’ll ever know being present at your birth. It is a painting that illuminates alternative narratives for a centralized character.
