le mer et de l'air



au bord de la mer



the city lies in dust

Translates as “the city lies in dust.”  This is a large piece on wood currently on show as part of Cathedral Studios ten year anniversary exhibition at the Water front hall in Belfast. This image Contains a reworking of 3 Black Flags, an earlier piece. The exhibition runs until the 30th of August.


lost desert town


Happy new year. I’m looking forward to another year on WordPress.

Scraped paint, scribbled text, and the suggestion of map lines are combined with the outlined forms of the side of a toy house and a toy soldier alongside vestiges of sand in this piece. I wanted it to feel like a place buried in a dream.

“Welcome to the the desert of the real” to quote Morpheus from the Matrix or  Slavoj Žižek.

I’ve been building up a body of work of several pieces on grey wood and canvas in the past couple of months. Ambiguous imagery implies adventure and desolation playing around with the paint and lines.

The small photograph of buildings in a desert landscape in the centre was bought for 25p in a shop called Snooper’s Paradise in Brighton. I highly recommend a visit there if you’re ever in the town.

I have been working on this piece in the past few weeks. Found images and diagrams interplay with various types of paint, felt tip and pencil on this wooden surface. Drips are welcome. Ruled and freehand lines and drill marks plot the composition.



I like the sign language hand signalling ‘bad.’ It is quite sinister coloured red.
