Working in a mix of traditional and contemporary techniques to create surreal and enigmatic figurative mindscapes.
From the surreal subject matter of science fiction, psychedelic colours of graffiti, crisp sculptural lines of conceptual design through to the automatic painting techniques of abstract masters: all of these interests have shaped my work.
My work is routed in science fiction and its ability, as well as its limitations, at exploring how we see ourselves in the now and where we see our selves going in the future.
During my time pursuing fine art painting i found that using abstract approaches allowed for chance discoveries that could be captured and developed. With the use Digital-Modelling techniques that i acquired during my time working as a designer, combined with the thought process of abstract painting, I hope to create surreal imagery that explores the possible aesthetics of distant, abstracted futures. Hopefully, in turn, making concept art that is explorative in the same way as a surrealist or abstract painting.
