I recently performed at RESIST in the Menagerie in Belfast- a night that combines sonic art performances and intense, genre spanning DJ sets. I looped electronic drum and synth sounds then overlayed live acoustic drums.

I made these two geometric chalk on board pieces as a commission for Art Loves. They are both 110cm squared and to be hung as a diptych.

I obliterated an old piece of work scoring with knives, drilling and gouging the surface. I like that it looks like the bi-product of  another process.

The same method has been applied to a piece of MDF primed with grey paint below.

This ‘difficult’ work was one of those that I gave up on and turned around to face the wall for about a month. When I came to look at it again I found I was more favourably disposed to it. The central image is a battleship. The dinosaur skulls were added later.

I’m showing my work in this exhibition at the Engine Room Gallery, Belfast.
