  • MY VISION

    There is a ‘journey’ to take and stories to tell exploring the familiar and unfamiliar within the boundless fields of scale, space and illusion. Critical embrace of these phenomena is leading me to explore figurative, surrealistic work that is confronting what we know as the 'rational process' with equivocal content that may encourage conversation from the viewer. Humour can be present in the work.

    While working mostly in oils on canvas the subject matter is quite varied. In my landscapes, that can feature rural, lake and coastal scenes, I may include a visual commentary on the spread of material affluence from major urban centres to rural and coastal environments and the visual impact this is having on the landscape. As this particular direction evolves, the landscape and imposing Man made structures become metaphorical in the deliberation of what society accepts in the pursuit of desires.

    Other topical, current affairs and cultural expressions sometimes become subject matter for paintings also. These works ask the viewer to reflect on broad view, cross – cultural observations of how we regard the 'empirical' world we find ourselves part of.

    All paintings shown in FOLIO and SHOWCASE are oils on quality stretched canvases unless otherwise indicated.
