Dancers and Circus Series, Artist Statement

In my Dancers and Circus Series I don't paint specific people. The figures symbolise the dancers, clowns and acrobats and the transformation they undergo on stage, the characters they embody. In these paintings I often use theatrical lighting even though I rarely define the stage. Painting with a knife, I use colour rather than line to create three-dimensional spaces and a sense of movement and light.

Cityscapes, artist statement

Sometimes you arrive in a strange city completely by chance and you immediately feel at home… And sometimes you may have lived there all your life, know every block of pavement as the palm of your hand, yet you just can’t shed this uneasy feeling that perhaps you don’t really belong there. Our relationship with urban spaces is long and complex, an integral part of our evolution as species. What defines the character of a city? Is it the architecture, the private memories we share with someone special, the unique light and the smells?
