One For Sorrow II
Mixed media acrylic and embedded objects on paper 30 cm sq
2015 Mixed media, and embedded objects on cement on canvas. 40cm sq This is a passing, a transition from one state to the next. It is signified in material but concerns the ethereal and intangible. There is no legacy, only values lost forever.

Here and There
Mixed media and acrylic on canvas 40cm sq No rudder or compass, the vessel floats free. It is everywhere and nowhere. It is mythical sailing in stories of fantastic voyages of the imagination. It is full of empty dreams. We keep vigil as it crosses our horizon.
Mixed media and acrylic on canvas 40cm sq Truth is examined, honesty held up to scrutiny. Beauty, no longer safely in the eye of the beholder, is in peril. Added value fails to keep the balance sheet clean. The square is without compass.
Illusion of Inclusion
Mixed media and acrylic on canvas 40cm sq There are barriers some are subtle others plain. A net is more than a barrier, it catches and holds.

The final image in the series 4 Enchanted Spaces Mixed media and acrylic paint and medium with embedded objects on cement on canvas 20" x 20" 2014
The third image in a series of Enchanted Spaces. Two ideas collided here. I was seeing the image as a poetic visualisation of 'The Field of the Cloth of Gold', evocative and romantic words reaching beyond the Tudor history. These visualised perhaps as a banner above glinting armour with an earthy ground. The hearaldry of a … Continue reading Golden Flux

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.
