Red Pedestal Head (2019)
At just over a metre square they are imposing heads, scaled so that an adult has the ratio of a child to a grown up. This intensifies the feeling that the viewer is the subject of their focus.
Each head is represented by a colour & mood.
I am an English born Artist from Brighton on the South Coast.
Since a child I have loved to paint. Self taught, I create large figurative or landscape paintings with a tale to tell.. always using bold colour.
I draw my inspiration from dreams and fleetingly glimpsed scenes that wont let my imagination rest. In that respect I don’t choose my subject matter it chooses me.
When painting I always try to maintain the point of view of a child, that’s why, although I own a large easel, I often find myself working on the floor like an infant at play.
My work has appeared on magazine covers and as album artwork. I have shown digitally in the Festival of Architecture and exhibited for eleven consecutive years in the Brighton Festival.
