Inspiration & Design of 'Biomorphic Worlds'. Inspiration for this artwork stemmed from my interest in geometry, cosmology and the nature of God. Aristotle's 'Prime Mover' was also instrumental in this artworks conception. Starting with a simple circle, how can we generate a universe full of infinite forms by using only a very limited number of rules and variables? This was the Genesis of this artwork. The underlying geometry is based on several thousand ‘kissing’ circles. I wanted these circles to be drawn to a very high level of accuracy so I resorted to using a CAD program that provided this precision. The resulting fractal-like pattern bears some resemblance to ‘Indra’s Pearls’ and the ‘Apollonian Gasket’. The considerable amount of time involved in producing this unique geometrical set-out drawing will be utilised in the creation of a diverse range of future artworks I have planned. This highly complex line drawing was then printed onto paper. By tracing around the network of circles, an infinite number of compound forms can be easily produced. Thus, from a simple pure circular form, we now have an infinity of complex forms. Each curve and form is related to, and predetermined by, every other curve. They are all created in the image of their creator, the first circle. The traced compound forms were then transferred to the canvas, keeping their precise relative positions and orientations. Description of 'Biomorphic Worlds'. Planet-like forms appear to originate from the distant golden horizon. Each planet is inhabited by various biomorphic forms. As the worlds grow in size, so does the complexity of their inhabitants. The use of strong, pure colours and the biomorphic forms is reminiscent of some works by Miro, Kandinsky & Klee.

As a boy I used to love spending hours drawing complex geometrical patterns with compasses; then colouring them in with pencils to make wonderfully complex, psychedelic pictures. I did not know it at the time, but I was using basic rules of sacred geometry to create mandala-type pictures. Years later, after completing my MSc, I spent 20 odd years in construction and architecture. I am fortunate to now work full-time as an artist. I work with both acrylic paints and metals to produce a range of paintings, metal wall sculpture, and custom copper interior design features. A feature of all of my metal artwork is that they are finished with hand-applied authentic & traditional acid patina finishes. Each and every patina has a distinctive character and personality. It is these subtle differences that ensure each piece is truly unique. Every patina finish is as individual as a person’s fingerprint. Everything is designed, handmade and finished by me. All my artwork is strongly guided by mathematical and geometrical proportions, especially those relating to circles (Plato’s ‘Perfect Form’) and the Fibonacci number series (AKA the Divine Proportion, the Golden Ratio, and the Sacred Cut). The broad underlying philosophy behind my art is exploring the apparent geometrical and harmonic relationships that appear to occur at all scales in the universe; from the quantum world to the cosmic scale, and probably into higher dimensions. All of creation appears to be determined and guided by the invisible pulse (Shiva’s drum). Plato succinctly surmised this concept, “God ever geometrises”.
