Portrayed in my artworks is what I consider to be the most significant battle of this lifetime; that between the natural environment and the ever-expanding technological world. It is a war existing without and within, transpiring in the outer physical world, as well as the internal, consisting of the psyche and spirit. The altering influence of technology is widespread.
My artworks are symbolic self portraits that bring to light this complex state of existence, attempting to both depict the current states of what is materializing around me and addressing the transformations occurring within. Painting and drawing are both exceptional personal endeavours and perhaps they are also a means of fighting back, to reclaim my true nature and that which is intrinsic.
