In Homages to Holbein, I use a single-point perspective distortion (as in Holbein’s painting “The Ambassadors”, which features an anamorphic skull) to lay an oil painting image over the top of irregular surfaces. Some of these are created using found objects. Oil painting, usually a heavy, fatty medium, is here given the ethereality of a projected image.
In the performance, “ERI“, an original figurative composition will be painted in front of a live audience. Live Art focuses on the moment of an image’s creation. An improvisational, visual art equivalent of jazz is created by merging Painting, Performance Art and Dance .[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
My art practice consists of drawing, painting and performance. I create figurative, two-dimensional art in a range of historical and modern media, as well as time-based multimedia compositions to be performed in front of live audiences.
My work is an attempt to examine the legacy of western painting, focusing on the origins of realism, on the relationship between religion and imagery, and on artistic processes in the age of technology and globalism.
I grew up in South East England, trained in historical media in Florence, and studied art history at the Courtauld Institute in London. In 2006 I moved to New York, where I have been working as an artist and teaching Latin and Art.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
