Social/Politics

I don’t have an overriding theme or style which I use or can be used to identify my work. I work mainly from photos found in adverts, newspapers, books or screen grabs from the internet or off the telly.

I see an image and respond to it, wanting to employ it in a painting or base a painting on a particular image that evokes a thought or feeling.  A photograph is a representation of a person or event, a painting gives more the feeling of a body or event taking place in space even if it is completely imaginary.
