Emotional Energy

My work is inspired by the emotional energy connected to my Epilepsy. I aim to capture these absence experiences and to paint something that can otherwise not be understood.

‘Am I going to have a seizure?’ is a daily anxiety. My paintings represent the battle between this anxiety and an anxiety around the gestures I create with the paint. Each fragment and mark explores a different type of emotion. I work on a large scale to display the huge impact this condition has on my life.
