Original Art
The work I’ve begun to do now is firmly rooted with a sense of place. It never struck me as important when I was younger for these associations to matter, but they do matter a great deal. I should know a lot of things about where I live so it seems only natural as an artist I ought to make references to that knowledge. It’s like acknowledging the influence a place has upon you.

Glass Intervention

I wasn’t consciously aware of this until the landscape engravings in metal. Prior to that I’d been making glass collages comprised of other materials as well, and had soon decided to take this idea forward as just part of a process to arrive at something that would be neither a painting, or a straightforward photograph of a collage, but a print made by combination of both, so the glass work is actually a collage built up using the glass as a vehicle for me to capture photographically and put on film that is then bonded with a sheet of toughened glass. The process turns 3D objects into sharp 2D images flattening what you see but retaining all the information, creating a different kind of depth using the trickery of light alone, replacing perspective with pattern and design.
