My current project focuses on utopian settings found in furniture shops, restaurants, bars and hotel rooms.
I find it interesting how these places are advertised as an 'ideal world', yet they are mostly unaffordable and are impossible to replicate in our own homes.
Through large-scale oil paintings, the use of colour and large brush strokes, I hope my work offers an escape from reality for the viewer. This plays on the fact that such arranged settings are themselves distanced from reality.
