My work is both an abstraction of the street and an analysis of the reality found there. The weathered structures and peeling skies are overlaid with the skeleton of scaffolds, the pedestrians silhouetted against the blasts of smog treading their boards, consumed by the stage, this surreal personality of structure which stands high above, untouched by it's denizens. All these are elements of scrutinising the phenomenal world intensified and atomised to the point of ultimately abstracting the imagery.
My work is composed from a variety of mediums, photomontage, subliminal collage, inks, acrylics and adobe interceptions. All designed to suggest that the street scene is a stage, a breathing, coughing, spluttering world with it's layers of armour and skin worn and shed depending on the urgency of the modern day, yet always garbed in appropriate attire.
