I am a Painter, Sculptor. A contemporary expressionist who draws inspirations from the social scene, human behavior and fantasies. I love how colors really have a life of their own, and the joy I find in watching them play together.
My artwork takes a critical view of social and cultural issues. In my work, I deconstruct the fantasies that are part of our youth and adult culture. Having engaged subjects as diverse as the gender matters, social life and architecture, my work reproduces familiar visual signs, arranging them into new conceptual expressions.
Often, these themes are combined into compositions that feature female subjects with color red either on their garments or their background. Although, it is sometimes inevitable to end up with non-figurative expressions that are merely a blend of colors spilled on canvas to express my fantasies. The color red establishes a dream-like surreal quality, suggests notions of passion, desire, and love and formally unifies the disparate objects in each composition.
While I use uniform materials and processes in each project my methodology is not consistent. I am always experimenting with a variety of techniques and ways of application of paint on canvas.
Each project often consists of multiple works, often grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.
My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience, but I've always loved colourful paintings particularly work by LeRoy Neiman. I love architecture particularly Art Deco and also works by Ugandan Artists; G. Kyeyune and Eria ‘Sane’ Nsubuga.
