The Blast series of works

 

“My current project 'The Blast' was the result of one of the most strongly felt inspirations I had experienced.   What I saw was a combination of textures, an unlikely juxtaposition of the man-made and the natural, objects long bereft of their usefulness and worn and encroached upon by erosion and encrustation.  I was looking at sand, clay, metal and stone in various combinations and in isolation also.  The textures were cracked, crazed, bright, blunt, sharp, wet, slippy, slimey smooth hard. So I set about trying to recreate the conditions that I thought might have come together in the brutal yet beautiful landscape that now inspired me.”
