Statement

Using traditional photographic material to investigate the boundary between representational artistic creation, based on natural form, and absolute concrete creation, where abstraction takes over and form becomes a compositional structure. The object is always evident in my imagery thereby allowing temporality to remain and combine the subject with the object.

Landscape plays a major role in my visual language, particularly the landscape of Scotland, and serves as a source, motif and starting point for my work as it is at once recognisable and more importantly triggers a primal emotive response.
