An exhibition of oil and acrylic paintings, prose and animation.
In my figurative paintings I try to capture the moment to the best of my ability, whether it be a thought, emotion or atmospheric feeling. These scenes of everyday life are taken from photographs I have captured in my surroundings. This moment I leave to the viewer to interpret. As each interpretation might be different, I believe each to be true. Each artwork is titled to my own interpretation which helps me to create prose and the animation of each painting. With the animated artworks are background sounds of the traffic, people talking, ocean waves, bird song and silence, from recordings of the time and of recollecting when I first took the photographs. These inspirational moments, and what I felt at the time, play an integral part in the creation of my work.
