Art Philosophy

Illuminated by dreams, observation and introspection my works reflect on questions of meaning and significance, both personal and social.

I work in a variety of two-dimensional media: photographic, digital, and traditional, depending on the conceptual aim.

Focus of the recent exhibitions

The recent photographic works tend toward the surreal and speak of the unacknowledged. It also continues my investigation of distorted reflections as the possible observational basis of much modern and contemporary art.
