Just another landscape artist?

Approaching landscape from a fresh angle, he combines his interest in maps with that of abstraction, colour, form and surface texture.

The work investigates how rural and urban areas can be, and often are, edited into one image to produce a landscape based on both reality and memory - thus becoming a unique cross-section personal to him.

This bringing together of elements of the real and the remembered, along with his personal experiences and affinity for the area, intrinsically become important aspects in the work. Certain places and times can take on special meaning or folkloric significance, and it is these that he strives to represent in his work.

“Art is not a mirror with which to reflect reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.” Bertolt Brecht
