This series of paintings draws its inspiration from journeys. My background in broadcasting has meant that I am never far from a camera, and I often use one frame from a video as a starting point. These works represent a split second, stretched in streaks of colour across the surface of the aluminium. In recent years I have started to scratch and scrape back into the surface of the painting so that the metal becomes part of the final work. Although my work is constantly evolving I regularly return to this process.
