Since March 2016 I have been researching a number of different texts, which have different contextual feeds into my practice. The areas I chose to study are both reflective of my interest fields and of suggested texts. I have looked in depth at how painters might work with the physical medium of oil and what that could mean. I also have researched a number of artists, some of whom bear no relation to my practice but are engaging by the way they paint or by the subject areas they choose.
Additionally I have visited a number of exhibitions, symposiums and talks some which feed into the context of my work and my interest field.
