Everything That Ever Happened Did Not Happen (After Moroni)

Canvas Panel
40 x 50 cm


“I’m interested in the artificiality of painting, and in our relationship with history through art. The discontinuity I’ve introduced into this re-composed version of Moroni’s Man With A Letter is my way of acknowledging that ideas, memories and history are made anew and adapted daily. Like all art, it’s a palimpsest pretending to be whole.”
