Primary medium: OIL ON CANVAS



From a very early age I remember being entranced by the way a painting - and painting is, of course, my favourite medium - could almost magically introduce you to a completely new world. For this to work well, though, there had to be a correspondingly high level of technical excellence that facilitated the transition, and not all the paintings I saw had the same level of believability.

At the same time though, I also loved the look of something that is hand made, an object that was clearly the product of craft taken to the highest level, and it is this double nature - a surface that is both the introduction to an invented world but also a beautifully crafted thing in its own right that I aspire to in my art.

As for the imagery I work with, I feel a sense of location in a European tradition of visual arts that has it's origin in the pagan world of classical antiquity over which a cloak of Christianity has been loosely thrown. This provides me with the raw material I need to indulge my own fascinations, in the hope that others might find them fascinating too.
