Regeneration: New Work about Regeneration, resilience and resurgence
All painting done with feeling is a self portrait of the artist. My work is about disadvantage, opportunity, regeneration and making the most of our time on earth. I record and reimagine the urban spaces of my youth, and the world we have made. It's down to the spaces we live in and the ways we are compelled to live. Art's not the answer, but it is a mirror and seeing things as they are and how they might become is a good start to making changes for the better.
Artists can't make a better world but we can show what it looks like. Its not a perfect world, but it can be a better one, so I am compelled to create work about seeing beauty in imperfection and living life to the full. We have to believe in regeneration.
