These portraits, much the same way as the genres of Vapourware and Plunderphonics, try to capture or revitalise memories. The portraits depicted are a hybrid of cultural imagery, real or imagined.
The portraits I paint are felt by me in some way, there is a history with them. I try to relive emotions whilst I paint, whether through listening to their music made whilst in the throes of restructuring this face on paper, watching film clips, or researching elements of the lives they lived. There is a love for them to some degree, a loss of time past and my own mortality as well as theirs. Most of the people I have painted have died, are extremely beautiful in an almost unreal way, have felt huge amounts of loss, trauma, addiction and complexities of creativity - the human condition is at its roots within these works.
