Art About Art

By fusing history, memory and nostalgia, I work with the iconic and the cultural, merging them to create new narratives. I quote from the art of the past so as to reinterpret a way of seeing and thinking that I associate with artists as disparate as Vermeer, Velasquez, Ingres, Manet, Duchamp and Richard Hamilton etc.

My artworks are, in part, referential in their intent rather than simply appropriated or copied from masterworks. My imitation is a sincere form of flattery. In addition to explicit references, some may find humour in my alterations. By leaving out familiar elements or by adding new elements to known works, or re-configuring components within them, much of my work is a visual commentary on aspects of the history of art.

Viewers often recognise 'familiar' elements in my re-imagined compositions. However, seeing them in unexpected and surprising compositions can lead to a reassessment of the original... and a 'smile in the mind' in witnessing the new.

All of my artworks have the potential to be produced on a very large scale.
