Main Gallery

Primary colours and superhero dress-ups: What is expected of us as we ‘grow up’?  Where did we come from and how do we know where we are going?  Is it really ok to be the sum of strength as well as flaw?  Conceptual properties of screen-printing are linked to the formation of identity based on experiences as layers of the finished work, drawn together in an exploration as portraits, interactive games and installation.

Access Gallery

My wife and I emigrated to Australia in 2014 for family reasons.  We lived in Sydney before moving south to the Shoalhaven region.  We both fell in love with the area and knew immediately it was where we wanted to live.  My work in the UK and Europe has always been inspired by the landscape and an emotional response to it.  Moving to Australia I have been confronted with a totally different landscape but one which is equally inspiring.  New forms, colours and different light seems to suggest a whole new language.  This exhibition is a selection of works produced since moving to Australia and covers areas visited in Sydney and the Shoalhaven.
