NEW WORK 2022-3
The outer cosmic realms have been an enduring source of interest which has evolved into a lifelong fascination with astronomy and space exploration. Being an experimental artist I consider art and science to be closely bound counterparts, as each field carries with it a sense of wonder, scope for experimentation, the opportunity for deep inquiry,
and the prospect of discovery and revelation.
Largely scrutinising relationships between inner and outer worlds - their hidden secrets and visual revelations –
my work largely draws upon organic shapes and patinas, and to environments both near and cosmically far.
Dealing with spatial location and the fact that we all inhabit the same planet as well as a much larger space - the Universe - my work offers an interface for philosophical reflection as the compositions become zones in which to consider connection with one's environment, self, and the cosmos.
I gain proximity to my subject via my telescope, a Saxon eight inch Dobsonian. This, together with several excursions to NASA, Houston, the Kennedy Space Centre, and ongoing space-related research, has informed a series of visualised phenomena, deep space anatomy, light spectacles and cosmic possibilities.
