His research interests are around the continuing presence and possibilities of image-based painting in contemporary art practice, with particular reference to place, memory and immanence, and the relationship between painting and photography with reference to temporality, documentation and the experience of the urban realm.
Graham has an extensive record of exhibiting both nationally and internationally, and of work with arts organisations within the West Midlands.
Through cultural practice we try to understand a little bit more what it is to be human. I am engaged in a painting practice which explores painting as a medium which embodies subjective experience through the relationship between the painted mark and the image. I am interested in the appearance of the physical world around us, particularly the idea of place and the urban realm. I explore the relationship between paint and the photographic printed image, and the potential of such relationships to embody time, memory and experience.
