Visual Artist | United Kingdom
I'm an abstract painter/sculptor working in mixed media. My aim is to encourage critical thinking through the study of progressive knowledge by researching the thought processes that ancient people went through. I look at playful puzzles in nature and science creating designs that draw upon curiosity and wonder. I'm a UK Artist who has dedicated his career to a life-long process working with and exhibiting Art and Site-specific Sculpture, made from precious metals and found materials. It is here with my found materials, I find myself exploring ways through my creative expression applying the materials in line with my feelings until they resonate through the complex layers of the higher self. Like water divining, I look to where secret meanings are hidden within the fabric of uncharted quantum power and connections within the subconscious mind.
I have worked in a variety of areas including, TVs Discovery channel and the BBC. BBC radio 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. and roadshows, independently and in joint ventures. From my apprenticeship in Southern Spain, in the 1990s with a world-renowned artist and sculptor Rowland Fade, to exciting new themes at the Wolverhampton Gallery (present), I have sought to maintain my authentic creative endeavour while overcoming obstacles that have often hindered my imaginative and inventive journey.
My creativity is drawn from my unusual life experiences. Raised in children's homes and spirited abroad at 12 years old, living alone in the Caves of Minoan Tombs in Matala and living off the land. Sleeping on the beach under the stars for 3 years.
