Supported by a Jerwood Bursary, the Bright Dynasty Paintings (2021) are a new body of work prepared within an installation of embodied and processual research and performance material.

Evident in these paintings, processes, images, and embodiments present at the time of completion vary. A transmutation of live and unhurried encounters moving with the materials at the heart of Bright Dynasty (2020), this series of paintings is both ornamental and functional, reflective and transcriptive.

Paintings colour, smudge, and smear across kaleidoscopic and exacting physical, emotional, psychic, and somatic states.
