My paintings take their inspiration from the last line of a Robert Louis Stevenson poem - 'Each a glimpse and gone forever'. I regularly film from train and car windows and recreate a split second of that journey as streaks of brilliant colour. My latest project is a series of paintings on large sheets of aluminium which take a trip around the Circle Line as their springboard. I filmed the journey with my iphone pressed to the window of the tube train and then chose just a few individual video frames as a starting point. My other work is more abstract - individual video frames deconstructed to their pixellated form and projected back onto the surface of canvas while I work. I am intrigued by the boundaries between video and paint, between the contemporary and the traditional, and by my own attempts to translate something which is transient into a permanent form.
