Contemporary artist and Co-director of Crescent Contemporary, Taunton, Somerset
Recent work embraces three strands or themes
Future History - Works are based in still life and objective drawing of objects that i have collected and accumulated, usually their value is in a state of flux. Often they are, rich in metaphor, or they may, reference other artworks or artists work.
Clusters - I also view them as Tangles or Weaves. The forms and iconography is compelling for me, containing both metaphor and complexity. Woven strands have been a recurring form in my work for more than twenty five years, perhaps there is some connection to weaving and looms in my Celtic ancestry.
Tablets - Are works that are moving off the wall and into 3D space and objectivity - what i envisage is a way of working with surfaces that begin to come nearer to sculptural form and away from pictorial illusion and unique mark making - and more toward the enigmatic object.
