One of the main questions posed in recent work is how the passive aggressive obscuring through the act of painting can explore, question and reinvigorate traditional methodologies of figurative painting. The work consolidates ideas of deconstruction; an act of taking apart and rebuilding. The concept of deconstruction can be seen to allow the painting to develop and change during the deconstructive process; which may also highlight the deconstruction of conventions and what is expected from figurative painting genre. The paintings seek to emphasise the process of representation by exaggerating the application and meticulous methodology through thin layers of paint and blocks of colour. This can function as a way of viewing what was there from past layers, and where decisions in the reconstruction of form were made.
