Having an autodidactic approach to the method and production of my work and being influenced by the post-modernist times we live in has led paradoxically to some striking and original pieces of work.
The theme that recurs throughout the images seen here reflect my own personal journey as well as symbolising a much bigger narrative of identity, life, death and the commonality that we all share. There is nothing more practical than sound thinking. No matter what your circumstance or goals, no matter where you are, or what problems you face, you are better off if your thinking is skilled. As a manager, leader, employee, citizen, lover, friend, parent — in every realm and situation of your life — good thinking pays off. Poor thinking, in turn, inevitably causes problems, wastes time and energy, engenders frustration and pain.
Critical thinking is the disciplined art of ensuring that you use the best thinking you are capable of in any set of circumstances. The general goal of thinking is to “figure out the lay of the land” in any situation we are in. We all have multiple choices to make. We need the best information to make the best choices and art can help us see a truth before its lost to conceptulation.
