Summer Life

Art does not capture a moment, or convey the equivalent of experience, but rather shares the world anew. Insects fly flat across the threads of plant and light.

20 May 2021

Fly Paper

As a child I was repelled by the cruelty of fly paper which attracts, then traps insects onto a sticky surface where they eventually succumb as they struggle to free themselves. I use the metaphor of Fly paper as a way of thinking about human temptation.

12 May 2021

Be Free of Violence

Art that supports the website www.befreeofviolence.today, created in response to the conflict that erupted in Israel and Gaza.

The World Before And After

A new artwork, poem, and my thoughts touch on the symmetry of climate change as I consider a way of understanding what approaches as 'The Fall'.

26 April 2021

Calm Beneath The Waves

An artwork that began as a study of ocean waves ends as a contemplative work with mysterious figures and curious symmetrical forms.

20 March 2021

The New Me

The image of a human skull is often viewed of negatively, however with this artwork I ponder on its vibrancy and inner life.

10 March 2021

Face to Face | The Coming Light

Two elderly people share their feelings at the point where their journey takes a new direction.

1 March 2021

Metropolis and The Fruits of Our Labour

My starting place to ponder on how the forces of technological progress transforms not only the inorganic, but life itself. The fruits of our labour counters the invasion of a virus that lies at the centre of human life.

26 February 2021

The World Unseen

Published for the first time at Public Art World, I voyage in search for signs of nature far below, hidden by the clouds of what we leave behind.

18 February 2021

Ophelia's Resting Place
