Artist Statement

My work is associated with the 'apocalyptic sublime', a metaphysical condition of astonishment and awe: explosive, phantasmagorical shapes evoke painterly tropes and pop iconography, and suggest cultural and economic cycles of creation and destruction, biological transformation, seismic contraction and cosmic expansion. Culling my source images from the Internet while referencing painterly tropes that include Abstraction, Op Art and the Luminist landscapes of the 19th century, my work continues to develop its own pictorial engagement with the vertiginous information explosion that defines our 21st century Technological Sublime Age.
