Not NUDE (Refer to website, if interested)

Eroticism as life force




Volition, by invitation > important for me.

But no control > open to re interpretation, violence, cyber bullying/abuse

Lead up/Explanation for LINKS > Metaphor for figures, interpersonal

Geometric ABSTRACTS?


Attraction. 2009. Oil on canvas. 100x100cm

Taboo/aesthetic. Vertical central line/division



The Other

Open link > reaching? Rupture?

Same ‘family’. We have discovered new in lockdown Yoga, bridge


Discreet. 2010. Acrylic on canvas. 100x100cm

Same palette, different ‘family’.

Reading: is it one person? Is it a group? Exists on same planet, similar but different.

Space > introduction of 3 depth by simple geometric shapes on right edge. Increasing ‘human’ aspect of group


About Turn. 2010. Acrylic on canvas. 100x100cm

Brings together both Attraction and Discreet

How we change our minds. 

Cross the floor > joining the opposing party in Parliament. 

Trump followers > will they move?

Is it read as one or a group?

Studio floor depicted, becomes wallpaper > Picasso

SPACE with geometric shapes on left

BEAUTY painting, glamour


Stardust. 2010. Acrylic on canvas. 100x100cm

Taking glamour and beauty adding colour to the palette.

Grammies. BAFTA – glitter

Reference to music. Nat King Cole (ultimate crooner/romantic) Willie Nelson, Rod Stewart.

Disruptor. Geometric coloured shape. 

Does orange/ABSTRACT shape trump links/FIGURATIVE?


Moonstruck. 2010. Acrylic on canvas. 100x100cm

Cultural reference. Movie Cher, Nicolas Cage. Romance

Falling in love, lose all rational thinking. 

Eroticism > Phallic shape right corner > Male/female

Actual moon/space travel.

Vertical line becomes horizontal line. Golden mean (mathematical concept) middle way better than two extremes.

Golden Section or Divine Proportion



Manna. 2010. Acrylic on canvas. 100x100cm

Unearthly > biblical reference, after Exodus from Egypt.…like coriander seed,  white, taste like wafers with honey. Stopped after 40 years at arrival at Canaan.
