In The Grove is a series of work where modern human domestic experiences are conflated with ancient human peccadillos as told through Greek Mythology.

The images begin as small drawings made in a life-drawing session. The painting process projects my own experiences to intermingle with the energy and feeling of the original works. It's an ongoing study of the human condition and they have a heightened connection to the past as expressed through Greek mythological narratives.
