BLAST PAINTINGS (2010 & 2012)
At the end of 2009 I met an explosives expert. When I was a teenager I had dreamed of joining the army but I developed epilepsy during art school and my plans were put aside. Making work like this felt to me like reconnecting with something I'd lost.
I've created 2 sets of explosion paintings. The first in 2010 for my first solo show 'BLAST' at the New Court Gallery, and the second in 2012 for the Other Art Fair. It was this series that grabbed the attention of Lulu Guinness and led to my 2013 collaboration.
