If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Digital, Painting, Photography
About my artwork
*photosynthesis: this isn't pure photography. it's an untutored attempt to warp photographed objects and people into unreal scenarios. I'm not an expert photographer by any stretch of the imagination. i take existing images i've photgraphed and synthesise them away from reality somehow. to make the whole more than the sum of the parts. to destroy the notion of time and place maybe.

*deco: as in decorative. i don't necessarily strive for meaning. the world is an intricate conglomeration of atoms. nature is meaning(less). my mother is a creative gardener but she used to be a window dresser in london. i'm drawn to window displays i see in london, but the art of window dressing has been eaten by corporate planning. art too, i believe, is being eaten by corporate planning. you don't say.

*noir: a dark space in which light is more apparent. light and its effects fascinate me. i used to stay up watch the old street lamps illuminate when i was aged seven. when i was seventeen i took a picture of hammer to make it look like it was falling from the sky.

*technology: i mostly don't use it. only at the end to tint the images. at present my technology runs to camera, printer, scissors, pen, tracing paper. my adolescence was sometimes one of primitive machines like the ZX81 with their primitive b/w graphics. and badly received radio stations. and churches.
Artists I like
max ernst, man ray, mc escher, salvador dali, marguerite duras, tamara de lempicka, joan miro, pablo picasso, edward hopper, giorgio de chirico, juan gris, georges braque, wassily kandinsky, paul delvaux, yves tanguy, federico fellini, sergio leone, peter saville, vaughan oliver, anton corbijn, claudia drake......
Interests
*pop music: its imagery and its transcendant quality. the idea of a pop (non) group interests me, where image totally outweighs substance. and graffiti artists - territorial rather than conceptual. untutored yet often more creative. i respect that.
Centre of the artworld:
London, online, nowhere and everywhere
