My bronze sculptures are bodiless figures. The casts reveal subcutaneous pathways of an inner motion. Flying off into abstraction the figures are inevitably brought back to a semblance of the human form, not it’s biology but a hint at what propels it. The sculptures are about the invisible world of a contemporary figure reacting to a quickening of time. Always in motion.

My paintings mimic the sculptures with the fusion of marks, gestures and color evolving into a figuration of sorts, in motion, passing through or part of an ever changing layered landscape.
