    Here you can see paintings in oil and bleach on glass, linen and paper. I am always compelled to try out new techniques. Alongside painting I work in ceramics, audio, silverpoint, charcoal, cyanotypes while also making short films all based around the imagery and data collected around nuclear explosions. My work deals with the sinister pageant of man’s attempt at dominance, when the honour of victory is denatured into a manifestation of nihilism.

    Moments from a Chinese government’s propaganda film are isolated in the works on paper. Here bleach is used as an oxidising agent, the mark making eradicating the colour and only becoming fully visible minutes after the brush has left the paper.

    In my largest piece to date Test -No.6, China's first H-Bomb is depicted with every square inch of the painting representing a thousand tons of TNT. The work is my meditation on this fleeting moment, a durational recording of the iconic symbol of ultimate power and destruction that could never be painted from life.
