The group of works I am presenting in this show are based on 2 explorative journeys to Israel/Palestine undertaken within the last 12 months which fed me with images and source material for the project. There is no generic formula to the work. Each piece sets up its own rules and tells a different story. The focus of the work is on the architecture of the occupation, of people’s lives within it and the brokenness of their bodies. Some of the paintings are based on the photographs I took wile travelling, other on memory and notes I made. These are not paintings ‘about’ Israel/Palestine but of places locked into a hopeless situation: spaces ruined by politics.
