    This series of work takes as its central concern the genesis of an aesthetic style and the evolution of this style into a fully developed and interpretable mode of representation. Modelled on the aesthetic of the photographer William Eggleston Higgins' paintings use the still life genre as a platform and a constrained language of mark making to adopt and reconfigure his visual language, thus creating a circulation of mimicry with regard to aesthetics. The paintings exemplify the methods by which we come to interpret and understand a specific aesthetic style, which is governed by its escalating visual context through varying media.
