My work deals with the themes of our relationships to each other as human beings, and the way in which we relate to our environment. I want to dramatise the complexity of these relationships.
On one level my subject is the struggle of the individual to achieve personal liberation and knowledge through the journey inward. This part of my work is expressed using visionary imagery of a personal nature, accumulated over many years in numerous drawings and paintings.
also want to dramatise the conflict between contemporary political and
social realities, consumerist capitalism, and the exploitation of the
natural world, with those other, wholly organic and natural processes
that exist in the world.
The cultural, historical, and allegorical associations of these references will locate our present situation within the context of our unbroken history.
