I’ve always been personally attracted to art which expresses an opinion or idea to generate thought and reflection. I generally believe that the role of an artist is to create images which express a different or alternative interpretation of life and the world.
My paintings, which frequently take a critical view of social, political or cultural issues, are often a reflection of subjective experiences and sentiments; expressed through the use of common objects displayed in unlikely or impossible situations. My personal emotional state or mood can often infiltrate my work – where loneliness may be expressed as a solitary animal in a box, or the drudgery of daily chores will metamorphose into an image of a man carrying a refrigerator.
