Trying Hard Not To Detach

Gesso, acrylics, sliver leaf and collage taken from a 1940's radio electronics magazine.

Rising 1

Mixed media on board. 45 x 45cm. SOLD A seemingly fossilised and inert past imprints and fertilises the now; it’s tendrils inextricably linking our inner dark and irrepressible glow, becoming a ‘mesh’ of strength. Enriched, enlivened and emboldened, the soul rises. Gesso creates the sculptural elements, while genuine gold leaf provides the lasting warmth and radiance that can’t be replicated with gold paint.

A Box To Belong 1

Mixed media on board 60 x 60cm. See link to purchase. Happiness sometimes feels alien. If we compartmentalise it, it can be revisited when we are more comfortable with it. An often preferable and familiar box with it’s certain and definite borders can feel safer. The flat, opaque black areas signify that unchanging safety in stagnation. To contrast that reliability of solidity, the lighter brighter areas with effects produced from diluted acrylic paint have less reliable boundaries....

One World

Mixed media on board 60 x 60cm. See link to purchase Our economically wealthy societies are closeted in the sheen of the superficially beautiful. Our claim that we are desensitised by reports of suffering ‘elsewhere’ is a convenient excuse not to have to analyse our lack of compassion. A global community is just a concept. Until it becomes a brutally obvious reality that we are all connected, for better or worse, we’ll perhaps go on clinging to the comforting veneer of tradition and beauty....

No Need To Hide

Mixed media on board 60 x 60cm. See link to purchase. The warmth and radiance of a place within reach of an open soul.

Illumination

Mixed media on board 102 x 48cm £850 plus shipping. Please email for potential purchase enquiries. A glow of hope is revealed in the most stagnant corners of the mind.

Let The World In

Mixed media on board 152 x 92cm. Please see link to purchase. A protectionist tendency to isolate from an interactive world renders the space and life within those rigid borders largely baron and inert. Insulated from an enlightened and dynamic existence any brief light becomes unsustainable. Gesso forms the low relief sculptural elements and the overall texture and detail is enhanced by application and removal of many acrylic paint layers.

Illuminating Footprints

Mixed media on board 150 x 80cm. Please see link to purchase. Our fossilised past illuminates potential The tendency as human beings to want to bury aspects of our past in favour of an unsullied future and a pain free present ignores the possibility that the past can inform. Indeed there is an occasional dare to hope that the suppressed fossils of our past may reemerge from the inertia, ’gilded’ with the courage to harvest those parts that infuse us with the confidence to live free....

Fertile Ground

Mixed media on board 150 x 80cm. £1800 SOLD A wish that what germinates in the murky depths could one day blossom. The likelihood that despite the many complex layers of the human psyche being apparently disparate and inaccessible, there remains a base from which potential could be realised.....

Out Of Hiding 1

Mixed media on board 30 x 30cm. SOLD Emerging from the protection and comfort of the known, we grow tentatively towards a horizon, which offers a chance to glow.

Embers 1-4

Mixed media on boards 45 x 45cm each. £300 each plus shipping. Please email for potential purchase enquiries. Living with mental health challenges among the darkness and isolation of that apparent reality, it seems there is no alternative outlook.

However, in seeking encouragement and support the embers of the former self stoked by interaction, empathy and comfort begin to glow again.

Embers 4

Muted Passion 3

Connections 1

Mixed media on board 30 x 30cm SOLD Our present day world often feels like one of disharmony, where we come to define ourselves through our differences rather than what binds us. We choose to ignore the subtle, underlying and seemingly insignificant connections that permeate our lives unnoticed. It often feels easier to restrict ourselves to where we assume we belong.

Piercing Connections 1

Mixed media on board 30 x 30cm SOLD We unfortunately all too often define ourselves through our differences rather than what binds us. There are precious few moments that serve to pierce through that increasingly stark political and social divide. Penetrating an apparently ‘inert’ divide forges a conductive layer through which enlightened relationships develop; as symbolised by the faint vertical cracks either side and through the glowing gold band.
