About the Artist

"The subjects I depict are usually man made structures such as scaffolds, ships, airplanes and automobiles - things that are extensions of our bodies in space. The forms of these structures tell of our human aspirations and intentions, and hint of our senses of exhilaration and limitation (and feelings of longing and loss). The context of the imagery is usually drawn from places I've worked: Industrial spaces, ship anchorages and booming grounds. An expansive, surrounding space is a deliberate aspect of this work. I want to convey a sense of place in relation to my own personal sense of internal, felt subjectivity. If there is an overriding theme in this work it is about the traces humans leave in nature."
