My Art

I work with a variety of media yet consider my art to be derived at through the media of painting i.e. format, construction, and aesthetics. Fine Art is often inherently elitist, in that to understand the meaning or purpose of an item of art the observer needs to understand various aspects about the artwork and often the artist, my priority is, by the use of symbol and colour , to produce exoteric paintings, as Terry Frost put it, ‘the painting has to stand and fall by itself’.
