Macrocosmos Paintings

Karen Woodbury Gallery writes: “Inspired by the artist’s recollection of a song by Van Morrison – a meld between jazz and rock­– the large tableau Moondance extends the artist’s preoccupation with the light, effects and mood of a lunar mise en scène. Shapes float and dance in an eerie, evening twilight.”

Lunar

The moon has a powerful allure, brimming with beauty, legend and myth. Its constant presence reminds us of the heavenly bodies beyond our own planet, the vastness of our solar system and the timeless nature of the world we live in. As it orbits the earth, the moon seemingly changes appearance due to its position …

Full Circle

Karen Woodbury Gallery writes: “Full Circle Red harks back to works of the early 2000’s where the artist explored the play of light and refraction, often using a bright red that would cast faint rose-coloured shadows onto the host wall. Assembled in a grid each of the 16 pieces in this new work has its …

Every universal body is in constant motion that is governed by an individual heartbeat with its own rhythm. The pulse of the heartbeat can be measured mathematically and subsequently, each mathematical sequence becomes a system for understanding the relationship of the human being to the greater universe and to time itself. Our moon, as it orbits the …

2017 Moon’s Ghost

EXHIBITION: Dominik Mersch Gallery
17 August – 16 September 2017.

I am fascinated by the nature of time and how it governs our lives and the universe we live in. In the natural world the passage of time is predominantly characterised by the existence of cycles and repetition where one phase or stage of a living, dynamic entity metamorphoses into another. I have created many series of works exploring the infinitely repetitious nature of time and the universal elements embodying this man-made construct. For example, I have had an ongoing fascination with lunar phases and the powerful effects of the moon on human life.

Mutation, morphology, light, impermanence and incessant change are at the crux of much of my work. As human knowledge shifts, so does the material world, with matter constantly engaged in a process of change on every scale: growth, evolution and entropy.

Much of my sculptural work focuses on undulating forms of waves, rhythms, dark/light relationships and the polarities of presence and absence.  Whereas my paintings show a dream world layering of shapes and forms expressing movement and shifting parameters.

In valuing artistic freedom, I do not not seek to follow a singular discipline or use a limited set of materials but see the world ‘as my oyster’ to choose whatever materials and methods best serve in expressing my ideas.
