Viv paints and draws freehand inspired by digital images grabbed from film and TV or observed covertly in public.

Vivid oil paintings reveal a fascination with emotional states. Investigations into elusive expressions form with the help of unwitting accomplices captured from the TV screen.

Domestic in scale (though far from cosy!) they make intriguing comment on artificial emotional entanglement as a substitute – or perhaps immunisation- against the fluctuating feelings of everyday life.
