About The Artwork

An Exeter night view. I stumbled across this scene close to home one night as I walked beside the railway. Some sort of disturbance had just occurred at what called itself a theme park and the pathway was blocked temporarily by a sudden surge of people.

My work comes mainly from the UK's urban scenery, and an inner, subjective landscape. I avoid more recognised attractions, searching for views to reflect my mood or, increasingly, what seems like the darkness of the age. Using my photos as a guide, I aim to paint more freely than photorealism. I am more concerned with atmosphere, colour and socially relevant content than with concept or form. Aesthetically speaking, my main message would be that beauty is wider than generally accepted — arguably universal — and not confined to prettiness, elegant shapes or particular types of subject. I look to combine what for me is the visual appeal of my preferred locations with a sense of contemporary malaise. As well as continuing with my usual stuff, lately I’ve been working on a new fantasy series, trying to make something strange and dystopian from images shot in my garden, which I’ve allowed to look increasingly post-societal.
