With all his prayers said and done he flicks a switch.   

Mixed media and acrylic on board. 2008 Box framed 350mm x 350mm 

As a working artist I understand the process and problems of creating a visual structure in whatever form that might be. My method of operating has always been that of 'making is thinking' which recognizes the experiential creative process over one that is purely mechanical or coldly conceptual, and where materials and processes mediate between thoughts and ideas.

The work is about play in every sense of the word, mind games to tease the eye and engage the senses. Fed by an obsessive desire for the childish and childlike naive innocence as viewed through the eyes of an adults knowledge and experience, the work is far from puerile and often leads to challenging and thought-provoking images and sculptures.
