    Pictures have a double reality being both the thing they are and. thing they represent. Simultaneously presenting an idea as an image and the image as a thing itself. The resolution of an idea more important than the completion of a picture.

    The unfinished yet resolved state more far more compelling than a demonstration of technique or style.
    Inspired not only by the works of Roger Hilton and Francis Bacon but also the unlikely references to 5th century Graeco Roman damaged works. Reference to theatre circus and film; for example the 1948 film The Snake Pit explores the horrors of a mental institution paired with a reference to the hopeless staircase in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped.
