Other images

I’ve become interested in the juxtaposition of something organic with a non organic geometric shape – the representation of a 3D object in 2D and how this confounds the image […]

Thinking about an internal landscape of the mind as a reflection upon dementia and psychology.      I’m not so concerned about creating a literal landscape or the illusion of space but more a sense of confusion of […]


New work and Texas

I’ve been invited to work at Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas for a month in June. http://www.flatbedpress.com/ Incredible as this sounds – it’s true and is a connection that has grown out of a visit to Austin in 2013  when I met with students and staff at the University of Texas faculty of arts and […]
