Statement

 

My paintings often evoke acoustic memories within atmospheric architectural spaces. I like to paint interior spaces, thresholds, and viewpoints which invoke a sense of spaciousness and inner peace, as well as abstracts and expressive landscapes.

 

I work from memory, photographs, and my imagination, applying various textures, layers and technical qualities to the painted surface to evoke a sense of dimension, acoustic, and properties of light. The paintings are often framed from a filmic viewpoint, incorporating reflective surfaces and counterintuitive perspectives. They sit between realism and impressionism and often include characteristic elements from my own background, as well as occasional playful abstraction.

Commission proposals are welcome. The paintings I produce usually refer to photographs of a chosen space or viewpoint within atmospheric and architectural spaces.

Bio/CV

My experience and background is in art, music, acoustics, product design, and sound engineering. I work across a range of media and technologies including painting, installation, music, sound and video mapping.

I completed an MA in Contemporary Fine Art at the University of Cumbria’s Institute of the Arts in 2017 with merit. I have a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education (2007); Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control (1994); and gained BSc Hons in Engineering Product Design (1989). From 2017-2022 I was based at Mutual, an artist-run studio co-operative in Edinburgh and in 2022 moved to set up my own studio in Glasgow. My mother is the celebrated British ceramic artist Elizabeth Fritsch CBE and I look after her archive and online interests.
