Flight from the studio

Oil on canvas

125 cm x 95 cm (framed)

My work is placed firmly in the contemporary realist tradition. My current focus is on the architecture of public spaces and in particular, areas of transition – stairs and escalators that link one place to another. The structure and play of transient light on geometric forms create spatial complexity, fracture reality and increase the sense of ambiguity.  I select viewpoints that destabilise the viewer, so one is drawn into a somewhat disturbing or surreal environment.  I deliberately eliminate people from the work in order to detach the space from human activity.  There is a sense of familiarity coupled with improbability.

Price: $1,500 (framed)
