Canvases are hung on sculptural wooden frames, the paint poured and tilted at angles onto further canvases to create pairings - one that is carefully considered by the artist as it tilts, the other, static on the floor, waits to collect the waste materials.

These unconventional painting tools allow gravity to paint sequences of canvases, challenging the idea of authorship. The final work bares no evidence of the gesture and emotion of the artist’s hand, instead the intricacies of the materials and the complexity of colour are revealed.
