All my paintings are stories and observations about the human condition. I use the matchsticks metaphorically, in clumps or individually to add layers to each story. The sticks add a three dimensional aspect which interacts with light to create shadows and move as the day progresses. Influenced by my graphic background I often like start the viewers journey or contract with the work using a literal symbol – this acts like the front door to the real story.
