A Moment In Time
This body of work is an expression of, or testament to my obsessions
-the ancient craft of painting and natural beauty.
Driven by my first encounter with the art of Caravaggio
and a compulsion to master my craft is my daily motivation in the studio.
A subconscious instinct and desire to capture the beauty of nature,
represented by the flower.
It is a trance-like process, transforming the everyday subject into
a monumental image
and celebration to impress the viewer.
My subject becomes the surreal, an ethereal
moment in time, in suspended animation,
a complex landscape of light and form.
The flower is a powerful image, representing love, life, loss, mortality and culture.
Humans and flowers have a unique relationship extending far back into our history
and our fascination with its form and meaning inspires my compositions.
