Absent Without Leave



This is an ongoing series of large scale paintings started in 2021. The work uses Army Surplus tents as both a surface to paint and as point of departure dealing with ideas around shelter, home and memory. The sewn structures within these found objects and the possibilities of their former life approach thoughts around conflict, borders and territory, using materiality and colour.
