About Artist

My practice is informed by personal, historical and cultural ideas of history and I frequently employ the working term “ An Implied History” which show scenes of desolated cities, post apocalyptic and iconic sites. When asked to comment or explain the basis for my work , there is never one single concept or philosophy but rather lots of different elements which make up my practice. These elements are born from a childhood love of 60’s and 70’s science fiction films which dealt with apocalyptic futures. For example scenes of desolated cities from films like Planet of the apes.
