My work is informed by the process of combining edited and organised research with the fluidity of intuitive mark-making. Inspired by my Italian heritage, I gather source material that explores the relationship between organic and human-made qualities captured within the old ruins and rustic towns of Italy. The repetitive process of deconstructing and reconstructing my artistic content is significant to my practice as a whole, where I create simplified forms that are used as tools for composing new abstracted compositions. Working primarily with paint, my work explores the use of clay, oil bar, cloth, and pasted papers. This multi-media approach is influenced by my collated use of abstracted information, where I am interested in creating structural layers of soft and raw textures that represent traditional qualities within contemporary art.
