Using my watercolour paintings as a starting point I take various prints and photocopies from the images, often blowing the image up to exaggerate the paint movement, splashes and speckles.

I then slice the images up into sections, sometimes using shapes cut within the pages of print ending with an almost multiple jigsaws of the original image that I then get to choose how it re-forms.

Onto various backgrounds of metal gilding, both colour or clear Perspex and rough painted sheets with gilding and placing the pieces back together but not entirely as the negative shapes tie the image together and offer a different pathway through.

The absence of the image ultimately becoming the power of that image.
