The concerns which are central to my work are the themes of place, existence and time.
I recall the seaside town of my youth characterised by its seasonal attractability slipping from bright, loud and superficial summer into a grey, peaceful and melancholic sleep of winter. This annual cycle has had a profound effect upon my work.
The inspiration behind my recent work are the weathered man made objects such as beach huts, upturned fishing boats and decommissioned mines that populated the town of my youth. I associate their bleached, worn and multi-layered surfaces with a combination of personal memories and universal emotions.
In a number of ways these surfaces are a visual metaphor for the passing of time, with their original creation by the forces of nature, my memory of them and the process involved in the creation of a synthesis of object/abstract impression
