"Stand Your Ground" 2018

"Stand Your Ground" is essentially a painting about searching for the unattainable. It is based on personal feelings of despondency and a reference to my interest in Greek mythology. I was always intrigued by the image and the physical effort endured by "Sisyphus" the mythological king of Corinth as he persistently struggled with his burden to ascend a hill, only to have his hopes consistently dashed as each stone was destined to roll down every time he reached the top.

When Fools Crow 2018

"When Fools Crow" 2018

The main theme of "When Fools Crow" is opportunities lost. This image was an experiment with painting in a much more realistic style. The pharaoh is actually a female character inspired by Caravaggio's "Judith Beheading Holofernes". I've given her an Egyptian Headress as a reference to my time living in Cairo and my general interest in Ancient Egypt.

I've included Tyrion from Game of Thrones because I like his defiant pose and confrontational glance. I would like to make more references to my personal interests in my artwork, and this piece was an experiment in using a character from popular culture to see how this would affect or shake up the general equilibrium of the piece.

"As far As The Eye Can See" 2017-19

"As Far As The Eye Can see" is a painting about loss and contemplation. The figures have been placed within a beach setting to suggest an atmosphere of fun or tranquility to mask the real underlying story. Each figure is rooted to the spot, with eyes shut, unable to move forward physically or psychologically.

Phase 10

"As Far As The Eye Can see" is a painting about loss and contemplation. Despite appearing in a group setting, the characters are in fact isolated. The figures have been placed within a beach setting to suggest an atmosphere of fun or tranquility to mask the real underlying story. Each figure is rooted to the spot, unable to move forward physically or psychologically.

Phase 7


Phase 6

I decided to include actual people, a father and son that I had seen standing by a roadside during a bus tour in Lisbon. I liked the idea of them both being paused in the moment, each lost in their own thoughts. 

Phase 5

At this stage of the image I began to experiment with using a more realistic style of painting, instead of creating imaginary characters.

Phase 2


Phase 1

The small child in this image was my first attempt in many years to select and copy an image by using a more realistic style. Previously, I would wait for characters to emerge from the layers of paint. The next stages of this image were not as successful and unfortunately I lost the strong sense of mood in the the earlier stages.
