The New Yorker is a dialogue between old thorough workings of the past and the disposable yet playful immediacy of the 21st century translated through its painterly technique. The profile is inspired by Piero della Francesca's diptych of the duke and duchess of Urbino, the cut out portraits from the 15th Century, which reference ancient roman coins. Usually the profile in roman coins faced right and it was unusual for a traditional portrait to face left during the 15th century, and I wanted site that time in history. There is a contrast between the two dimensionality of the clothing against the sculptural realistic face, The bright 2d nature represents the technology and immediacy of the modern world in contrast to the sculptural feel of the portraits - as Italian portraiture of the 15C was influenced by a Flemish approach, confirming the realist tradition based on ancient sculpture. I have called the piece the "New Yorker" as it was a follow on from another painting called "The Florentine" which was a inspired by a course I just completed in Florence. The New Yorker represents my upcoming trip to New York and to remember that it's important to be focused yet always playful and joyful along the way as it is just as important to your journey and it will define your destination.

For enquiries please get in touch through Unix Gallery, NYC. I am exploring my own personal mythology that speaks about identity and the core concerns of human existence. It's a constellation of my beliefs, feelings and images that construct my own explanation of the world. Some of the questions I ask through the work are, where do we come from, why is our planet and wellbeing so out of balance? Defaulting to fear and frustration rather than love and creation and how it is our responsibility individually to shift that. My research includes painting daily thoughts and stories. These stories are from personal experiences, observations, conversations and videos and books on the quantum field and the power of thought and intention. I am also looking at mythological paintings from the renaissance period and overlaying my reaction to them on top of the image. And continuing my research on western and eastern story telling through mythology and seeing where that leads me. The aesthetic framework that I am using is one of mythology; which portrays a sense of magic, morality, a life lesson and even mystical creatures. I have added a sense of lightheartedness to the work, almost childlike imagery or a larger scale sketch which provokes a freedom from the left brain thinking which is typical of the society we live in who struggle to obtain their connection to nature and intuition. My work ideally encourages one to see a point of view from an open mind, with fresh child like eyes.
