Falmouth School of Art, 1989, Bachelors
My work is based on the blurring of philosophical conceptions and science fictions that aim to question evolution of humanity and technology and the place of soul/aura in our age of modern technology. Philosophy and conceptual theory is always the starting point for my work and it is from here I visually manifest ‘thought experiments’ through my art practice and processes. I enjoy and indeed generally intend (but not always) to combine or synthesise traditional and contemporary materials, techniques and technologies. Over the many years of practice I have formulated a rich visual language and set of processes in which paint and computer technology (and many other things) are synthesised and utilised to manifest my ‘thought experiments’ and explore philosophical posits. One example is the process of burning artworks to form pigments to paint with, this is an re-appropriation of the Hindu practice of Antyesti. My practice provides an exciting and on-going ever changing realm to address the as yet unknown unknowns of human advancement in the age of computer technology, genetic development, and future wonders and catastrophes of human evolution.
