Green

It's an environmental metaphor. The game between the forces that would destroy our environment and the fragile environment itself. A chess game in which the pieces are being taken, one by one, above the players heads the collapse is happening. The fishbowl, a symbol of a fragile life system, is kicked over by the greed of capitalism. Everyone for themselves.

The Last Tree

This could have been titled The Money Eaters, it's based on the famous saying: 'When the last tree Is cut down, the last fish eaten, and the last stream poisoned, you will realise that you cannot eat money' The painting is a metaphor for environmental destruction. So when the last tree is left standing what's the best course of action? A corporation buys it, puts it on display and charges people for the privilege of seeing it. The sky is a polluted dirty orange beyond the dome, whilst inside the audience sit silently as witnesses in a court who won't speak, they are subdued with a light show of the creatures that might once have existed alongside the tree. Others in the front have purchased money with their last grains of food from a heavily guarded vendor, having been persuaded by the man in the suit that money is good to eat.

Generation Mutha Board

Computer technology is a mixed blessing. My old job as a graphic designer meant that I was forever being sucked into the minutia of computer software. Sometimes my computer seemed the only real thing. We observe the world through the neurone of a mother board and forget to connect with nature. When printing started to die thanks to new technology I tried designing websites but it was driving me even more insane with all its coding until one day I had the chance to look up and experience the world as it is. What's more I started painting again and what's more, no longer sedentary staring at a computer I lost weight, then I was able to sell my newly created artwork on... yes you guessed it, the internet, via my computer on Artfinder. My message is; enjoy what technology brings but don't get sucked into it, the real world is out of that window you're sitting next to.

The Juggler

Playing with creation. Just trying to get a sunset, a full moon, and a lot of planets into one painting... oh and an ocean and a galaxy too... and a juggler for good measure.
