This body of paintings presents a disjunctive, seemingly haphazard array of pictorial references that are derived from multiple historic periods. This includes an image of HG Wells on a bicycle, a placard holding Bible salesman circa 1890, an engraving of a recumbent Eve in the Garden of Eden and the imaginary future ruins of London. This assortment of subjects is complimented by a set of different painting techniques which include commercial digital printing on spray painted grounds, refined hand painted detail and loosely expressive gesture. Whilst these divergent depictions create a turbulent, non-linear temporal dimension they are nonetheless held together in a field of highly saturated, unworldly colour. The differing historic imagery combined with a wide variety of material application offers an alternative view of how the time of migrant experience (Bal’s ‘heterochrony’) might be rendered on the stationary, flat surfaces of painting.
