Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Over the past five decades I have made sculpture, paintings and drawings consistently related to landscape and nature.
The last twenty five years I have lived and worked on the magical island of Menorca. In the work I attempt to solidify wind, the colour of heat, the ambiguity of half light, the sensation of a wisp of air, including the experience of the changing seasons.
