About The Artwork

'I THINK' remains one of my most accessible pieces, and one of my personal favourites. 'I think therefore I am' French philosopher René Descartes made this declaration that ended with the ego, but didn't provide us with any intention. If we intentionally enact our thoughts, they begin to hold power beyond contemplation. Procrastinators take note! Living as we do amidst present day chaos, we might ask ourselves whether our thoughts are to be considered our own. Are we as individuals contemplative? Rational? Capable of sound judgement and reasoning? As an artist I want to pose questions. Questions compel us to seek answers. The more we question, the more we begin to understand ourselves in relation to the universe, and all living creatures within. Mankind has pondered these ideas for as long as he/she has been conscious. Living as we do in the age of the 'individual', never have these questions been more potent. Spread forth and contemplate my friends... 'I THINK' Limited Edition of 100 (+10 A/P's) 'Amaranth' red on Off-white base, with 1.5" white border. Commissioned versions are available on request.

In 2013 I opened up my first studio/gallery space in China as a personal experiment. Working in a variety of media, with a focus on silk screen printing, I began exploring my own work while connecting to and collaborating with a number of artists in Chengdu, China. My personal work in this period spanned multiple mediums including solo/group exhibits and curation of a number of group shows and events (2013-2019). Whichever media/medium I find myself working in, my first intention is always to find ways in which to connect with people in some new way by attempting to alter perspectives, both real and imagined. I may also on occasion be looking to provoke, though only ever with the aim of starting a conversation. Communication of ideas is where my personal curiosity lives. My initial works in China centered on iconography, as I sought ways to both empasise and deconstruct the power of immediately recognisable imagery and icon (I was also having fun with people's reactions). As I've continued to experiment, more recent works have centered around language, with a recent exhibit 'Failure to Communicate' investigating social context bias (Dual Inheritance Theory). I've been enjoying very much the process of honing thoughts and observations down into concise, often prose like structure, then transforming these texts into visual, sometimes abstract imagery.
