I’ve been developing my practice since the 1990’s and over the course of that time my work has been created in various media, but always the subject matter has been connected to the theme of ‘Time’.
In my younger years I came across the book, Tertium Organum, by Russian esotericist P. D. Ouspensky. Descriptions of multiple dimensions and space and time and our perceptions of such, completely captured my imagination.
Growing up in Sherwood Forest I have felt connected both to nature and to time through my own sense of nostalgia and the very visible reinforcement of seasonal change. I try to connect the viewer to the phenomenon of time through my depictions of natural landscapes. The barren lifeless oak trees that stand sentinel throughout Sherwood Forest are both testament to the passage of time and yet are filled with all manner of smaller lifeforms, remaining part of the forest’s living ecosystem and a microcosm for the forest itself.
