ARTIST INFO

 

About  

 

My work focusses on the human figure. I'm interested in aberration, distortion and happenstance. I love to use or adapt processes that incorporate random, natural self creating pattern fused with fine drawing / making. My practice is often printmaking but I also love to paint, sculpt and make videos. 

 

Education  

 

Started out as an engineering student but switched to study graphic design at the London College of Printing in the late 80's. This is where I learned and loved printmaking especially drypoint, etching and monotype.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork    

 

I have printed from etching plates directly onto the blank postcards. I chose a broad selection of the sort of images I like to make. This includes my ongoing 'alter ego' artwork Bosci. He is a animal like house guest creature who collects items for his growing hermitage/museum. I have an interest in the Fukushima Nuclear plant disaster and its ongoing effects. I have recently been making a growing suite of fine, very detailed etchings where humans and fungi are fused.
