Statement And Resume

Short Statements About The Art  

 

Series:  Wall Street !? 

These artpieces were inspired by the 2008 Wall Street financial crash, its causes and world-wide impact. There is ever-present danger of a repeat, the results of which will be catastrophic.

 Series:  Sex, Love and Hate 

This photographic collection explores the beauty and dangers found within the triangle of human relationships. 

Series:  To Hell With it.....I WANT! 

Obsession, addiction, and attitude are combined in this modern series of photographs.  

Series: It's Hell on the Highway (Toy Boxes on the Hwy)

Using a collage of photographs and juxtaposing children's building blocks in a (toy) box on a highway combine to form a contemporary display of art.

I was born, raised and reside in Alberta, Canada.  Having worked in jewellery design, administration and management, project management, law enforcement and law, I began my art career when the inspiration struck at an art festival called "Art Walk". That day awakened something that lay dormant within me for a long time, an unknown that I felt a longing for...finally, I had found it...IT was art.  Since then I have been creating; 3 dimensional objets d'art, painting, photography, drawings and other things.  Working in series, I record my intentions towards the objects using a combination of materials to confound the generic limits of what one knows, while holding a visual comprehension the piece reveals itself as strangely familiar yet unfamiliar.  Deviations from what is known permits modification using geometric forms and solid presence, all the while injecting categorical confusion to reveal the levels of deception involved in illusionism.   My work focuses on the structures of perception, striving to conflate the world of images and thoughts, which can be apprehended but at times not physically grasped, amid the world of objects, which is the same space that we ourselves occupy.
