Abstract

My abstract images encompass different subject matter ranging from the Natural Environment through to Urban Decay.

They can change the reality that is obvious at first glace and turn it on its head. For example, a rusty piece of metal can look like a landscape.

I especially like how urban decay can expose what is underneath. History is unfolded by the revelation of layers of paint eroded by the elements.

I see this as a visual metaphor of life as the human facade is broken down to reveal what lies inside.

Sometimes the images are just about colour, form and abstraction.
