My artistic practice is diverse involving various media (both 2D and 3D). This is partly because I tend to visualise a piece and then bring it to fruition using whatever is the most appropriate medium. Much of my work bridges the relationship between 2D and 3D, negative and positive including negative space, shadows, and reflections and, increasingly, between figuration and abstraction. My work is often analytical – reducing images to their basic elements and then building them up again but often distorted or changed in some way.
Subject matter ranges from the serious to the scenic (see various Posts). However, within this there are three large mixed media, on-going bodies of work covering recurrent themes: The Crow / Birdland; Trees & Roots; and Lines (see individual Posts and also Shows & Installations). The first two have featured in various solo and group shows over the years but, so far, only two small piece from Lines have been shown publicly (due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has, of course, radically reduced opportunities to show work).
In September 2021 six pieces of my recent work were shown in Changing Spaces at the Hastings Arts Forum. Lines I (Cologne) was chosen by the jury for the Print International 2021 in Wrexham (4th December 2021 to 26th February 2022) and was also shown in the Phoenix Art Space, Brighton along with work by other printers from Volcanic Editions, Brighton. This was followed by a solo show in the Birley Centre, Eastbourne featuring pieces from both the Trees & Roots and Lines series Originally this show was scheduled for March 2021 but, unsurprisingly, had to be postponed so was held in February / March this year.
After working on Trees & Roots and Lines for a number of years I am now working on new works in the Skyscape series. These are multi-screen monotypes. The aim is to show them as part of the Changing Spaces scheduled for April / May 2023 at the Hastings Arts Forum, St Leonards.
Please note that most of my work is for sale. Any enquiries regarding price, availability etc.
