About The Artwork

About This Image “Tears Of My Ancestors” This 300-year-old abandoned farmhouse wall near my ancestral Irish home became a deeply personal tonal poem remembrance of their suffering during the Famine years. I waited until the ambient light softened to enhance the patina so I could record the handmade details of its finish and centuries of wear. About My Work I have been fortunate to spend my life chasing light to tell stories and fill my creative soul. Today, I continue interpreting images using my signature visual stamp; reducing the subject down to its most essential and emotional qualities. Along with my editorial/documentary projects, I embraced a wide range of abstract works captured with the same perspective of the decisive moment; I am showing those images here for the first time. Most of my abstracts use light, shadow, form, texture and composition as one-of-a-kind transient combinations, with each element aligning to create the frame for only that moment before growth, decay and natural light move on to their next stages. My aim is for these images to suggest new secrets and fresh interpretations each time one is viewed. Prints Limited Edition prints are sold UNFRAMED ONLY. Unframed archival pigment ink print on Hahnemüehle 310 gsm paper in a variety of sizes. Your print is supplied with a signed Certificate of Authenticity and a numerically matched holographic badge.

I have been fortunate to spend my life chasing light to tell stories and fill my creative soul. Today, I continue interpreting images using my signature visual stamp, reducing the subject to its most essential and emotional qualities. I began as a 19-year-old photojournalist, travelling the Formula 1 circuit in the 1970s-80s, documenting the sport and its iconic racing drivers on black-and-white Tri-X film. I searched for “decisive moments,” deliberately disappearing into the background as a “fly on the wall” to reveal the essence of each subject’s heart and soul as they fought long ago to be the best in the world. Those images now appear more contemporary as the years pass. They have been featured in dozens of journals, and these fine art prints are now in private collections worldwide. Along with my editorial/documentary projects, I embraced a wide range of abstract works captured with the same perspective of the decisive moment; I am showing those images for the first time. Most of my abstracts use light, shadow, form and composition as one-of-a-kind transient combinations, with each element aligning to create the frame for only that moment before growth, decay, and natural light move on to their next stages. I aim for these images to suggest new secrets and fresh interpretations each time one is viewed. The PALM BLU collection celebrates both familiarity and surprise. I use the palm's highlights and shadows to create precise graphic frames and then apply subtle light and color manipulation to suggest unrelenting heat, blinding sunlight or a cool evening breeze that transforms the bland into the seductive, the simple into the complex, and the natural into the mystical. My HEAT collection uses infrared processing and exact positioning that visually transforms the relationship between each palm’s dense shadows and bright leaves into a graphic, creating the sense of dark mystery and intense emotion needed for large statement pieces. My TRAVELERS collection employs macro photography of each palm’s one-of-a-kind artistic markings that reveal painterly abstract forms, color-streaked desert landscapes or the allegorical woodblock prints of Hokusai. My EXPRESSIONS, WHISPERS, METAPHOR, SEA SALT and SAUVER collections celebrate the grandeur and wonder of pure found art in accidental forms before natural wear or another human’s hand changes them forever. I also include access to my WAITING Grand Prix historic black and white portraiture collection.
