On view in the exhibition is a body of new paintings that stem from things seen in passing during daily journeys through the city, suburbs and industrial areas of South East London. In the paintings fragments of this environment, such as buildings or the structures and objects found scattered around construction sites, the River Thames and pockets of wasteland, get conflated and synthesised with a formal vocabulary that evolves through drawing as well as editing and re-working on the surface. In this way each work presents its own internal logic, but at the same time perceptions from the outside world act as catalysts or filter in through the process of making, meaning the works operate in varying degrees between abstraction and representation.
