"Vintage picture postcards offer me a peek into a foreign and intriguing past and ignite my imagination through their words and imagery.

With the messaging forums of our modern age there is an accumulation of material, due to the immediacy and storage compacity of digital technology. In contrast, communication of the past had a physical presence and was rarely immediate. It is the tangible quality of the postcard that I seek to celebrate in this digitally driven era.

The picture postcard was a mass-produced object with many identical counterparts. Appropriating the postcard in the form of paintings creates a singularity which is absent from the reproduced item. A singularity which people often seek in the face of today’s bombardment of image multiples.”
