Description Representational/Figurative Work

My representational/figurative work is an eclectic mix of 'unique evolutions' with lots of autobiographical references. Much of my work is essentially ‘Art about Art’, multi-layered in construction and potential meaning.

It is hoped that those with or without knowledge of art history find something of interest in the work – they might enjoy the depth, detail and craft, they might ask ‘how are these works made?’ As for their meaning, they are open to multiple interpretations. If the viewer is left with a ‘smile in the mind’... then the work is doing what it is meant to do.

Many of my artworks are made by importing original and sourced pictorial content into two kinds of image manipulating software, the composition is then constructed, developed and finessed on an iPad and PC.

Each work is then printed onto white Hahnemuhle Fine Art Paper or canvas stretched on board. The final stage is to enliven the surface by adding areas of gouache or acrylic pigment with hand-painted brush work.

All of my artworks have the potential to be produced on a very large scale and all works remain unique because of the final hand painted stage.

Abstract Work

Collectively, my abstract work might best be described as ‘Organic Abstraction’. They are made by importing first hand pictorial content into two kinds of image manipulating software, the composition is then constructed, developed and finessed on an iPad and PC.

Each work is then printed onto white Hahnemuhle Fine Art Paper or canvas stretched on board. The final stage is to enliven the surface by adding areas of gouache or acrylic pigment with hand-ainted brush work.

All of my artworks have the potential to be produced on a very large scale and all works remain unique because of the final hand painted stage.

Some of my art heroes:

Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Vermeer, Frans Hals, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Diego Velasquez, George Stubbs, Théodore Gericault, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingre
