Oil painting on Birch plywood mounted on a wooden frame. This very impasto painting is based on my experiences and the people I encounter in this very urban landscape. It is an almost religious experience brought about by the architecture and the ambiance of the place and the way in which people move in and out of this well lit and expansive place.
l live and work in London UK. After working in a variety of mediums for many years I have gone back to my first loves; painting and drawing. I was born in Zimbabwe but spent most of my youth and early adulthood in South Africa, I moved to the UK with my parents when they returned in 1992. I spent almost a decade in various parts of Scotland. I also completed my studies here. I moved to London in 2001 when I was awarded a place on a long term artist residency programme. I have remained in London since as this place reminds me of all the places I have lived. As someone who has been travelling since a small child I have a full understanding of what it means to be an alien in a foreign environment. Some of my experiences have been tough. I make art work to simultaneously escape and acknowledge my real life experiences. I want my paintings to reflect my alienation from the world around me along with my desire to be a part of it and my delight in it. The "Urban Cathedral" series is full of people many of whom are aliens like me enjoying their exposure to cosmopolitan and fascinating city environments. I also want my work to show how torn apart I have been left feeling from years of travel and uncertainty while demonstrating the animal desire for survival that drives me forward and that has enabled me to believe in a better existence. The "Edge of the city" series is a collection of mythical beings in fantastic worlds conjured up out of my travels and my life experience. I have paintings, prints and drawings in several private collections in; South Africa, the Isle of Skye, Aberdeen and London. I have a gouache painting in the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh archive as part of a John Kinross Scholarship to Florence in Italy. I also have photographs in the Acme Studios London archive and video works with the Live Art Development Agency, London. I have won several awards, residencies, bursary's and commissions.
