Recent Work: Prints from 2017 and 2018 including the ‘Songs of the Earth’ series, Relief Sculptures 2017 (‘Eclogues’, smaller works sent to Japan exhibitions) & Reliefs, Sculptures and Prints 2015-16. The ground is literally becoming my canvas...

The new series of ‘Songs of the Earth - Masques’ explores the vision of an underworld of chthonic forces masked behind elaborate metal ‘faces’ composited from metal drain covers I photographed on my recent travels in Japan, Poland, Italy and the UK. The frightening face of what we repress!
