Concept The metaphor that best describes my progress as a painter would be the weaving of a tapestry, in which themes which have preoccupied me over the last 20 years, resurface and recur,taking on new tectures and motifs. I am particularly interested in the idea of fusing apparent opposites, in painting a liminal world somewhere between imagination and reality, mediated by experience and memory. I am happy for my work to be viewed on any level, however; purely as images or as an object of projection, a window in which people can see their own experiences mirrored or which can foment an individual's dreams and ideas. Influences Politics, literarture, sociology, psychology, history, living in a multi-cultural city, cinema and new and old traditions in art practice. Titian and Modernism. Career path I have exhibited extensively and am currently working towards a significant in 2014 in Spitalfields in London. I have works in major public collections as well as private ones both in the UK and abroad.
