The Conemen

When I was a child we had a print of Hieronymus Bosch's 'The Conjurer' above the mantlepiece. It was such a curious and strange image to me at that age. It left a deep impression, in many ways because it was so hard to fathom the full meaning of what was being played out in the painting. Now as an adult, for me this painting has lost none of its intensity and mystery, a welcome vision in a world that to me seems a little too ready to abandon mystery. So this appreciation of things unknowable has formed the basis of the Conemen. As with the Bosch painting, with this series I intended to create a sense of drama, moments charged with meaning, yet with an ambiguity that allows each viewer to interpret their own version of events.
