About The Artwork

What would Europe be without its philosophy? Western philosophy has multiplied ideas, with a continuous renewal of its lines of thought : idealism, pragmatism, existentialism, metaphysics… European philosophy has brought its best ideas to politics, ethics, art, mathematics, physics… On the eve of Brexit I have chosen to pay my tribute to this European patrimony by painting distressed portraits of a number of prominent European philosophers.

Born in the UK in Manchester- now working from my Studio in St Ives. My oil paintings explore aspects of MELANCHOLIA using traditional methods of oil paint on canvas and on wooden panels. I work initially from pen and ink drawings that combine elements of my own figurative drawing with my photographs and found images. Working directly onto the support with oil glazes, I use these subverted images as the basis for a loose and immediate style of painting. Consequently the oil paintings have a freshness of execution despite the melancholic themes.
