Art and the making of it for me is a vehicle for contextualizing and conveying ideas about certain things like the environment (plants, animals), social issues, the sub-concise, war and life in general. It is about colour and form, from the everyday object like colourful drapery, to the micro world of an ant about to eat its prey to the war machines in Iraq. The Idea of creating an aesthetically pleasing work is also important to me in picture making and is something I give large consideration to in most of my work.
The Exhibition ‘Varied Realities and other Ideas (Unusual Juxtapositions)’ is a series of art works that take into account the natural world around us ,the everyday, and social and political issues. Through the language of art I try to contextualize certain Ideas about deforestation, the absence of plants and animals within the human conciseness and the industrial age,(making things in our own image), and the war in Iraq.
The Imagery within this Exhibition is sourced in a variety of ways, from imaginative thought process (sketched ideas), to conceptual ideas, referenced photos and image of the internet. I am no
