My paintings and drawings question confusion, moral subterfuge, social positioning and the consequential hypocrisy, double standards and identity conflicts that emerge from a world that dictates how we should be. The paintings combine methods from the Symbolist movement, and often reference mythologies or religious imagery displaced to the modern day. There is a light touch of humour in the works, which is a reflection of how not to take ourselves too seriously in our constant quest to attain all. There is a deep root in drawing, and the colours are strong and vibrant keeping the message optimistic and retaining the humour. These are complex paintings and drawings and the titles act as a guidance to interpretation, with the viewer filling the gaps with their experience.
