These paintings consider the transiency of individuals and communities in global cities and the resiliency, energy and beauty that can be experienced amidst these ever-changing spaces. During recent fieldwork I became aware of the commonality of urban sprawl, tourism and development in global cities around the world and the effects these can have on the populace. I tried to capture through colour, symbols, movement and layering, the hope, energy and tenacity that can be borne out of changing urban spaces.
