Painting

This series investigates our evolving environment, particularly where there is juxtaposition between natural and man-made forces. I am intrigued by our relationship with nature, how we use and harness natural resources, produce waste and alter landscapes and our surroundings. Equally, after time, nature will creep in and alter the surface of our man-made structures. This cycle of creation, use and decay, is central to my work.

I find an alluring beauty in industry-scapes, disused buildings and areas where the natural world has been exploited for resources and energy. These industrial structures may then become features of the landscape themselves, sometimes iconically so. The passage of time may reveal their ephemeral function and eventually nature takes over again. Battersea Power station, before the recent renovation project, is one subject of this series, as are the Cornish Tin mines.
