Observations on daily contemporary living, social injustice and environmental collapse appear throughout the work. In this global pandemic we now see conflict between the engines of science and religion, struggles with confused leadership, corruption and self-interest. I find my paintings focus on these concerns; they become social documents, referencing the many ways that perceived power in images can be used to direct and control freedom of thinking and expression.
A background of street art, tattooing, electronic music and DJing at raves are evident amongst the layers within the paintings. They frequently reference vintage imagery which carries a romance, placing them in contemporary paradoxical situations, often with a twist of macabre drollery.
