My Work

Details of my most recent work and an overview of the series and one-offs that
I’ve been making over the last few years.

Florida Sky, Jan 28th 1986

Florida Sky.

This piece is deceptively dark, in that despite being a beautiful, warm blue it actually commemorates possibly the most high-profile disaster of the modern age.
On January 28th, 1986 the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded on take-off killing all 7 crew members. All shown live on global TV.

Inspirations.

These pieces represent fragments of memory. They are tiny ‘macro’ photographs of sections of printed images of pieces that have either directly or unconsciously inspired my own artwork. The title of the pieces, if deciphered by the viewer would lead them to the location of the image and a greater understanding of my influences.

About AlphaCounts

TwentySixes.

The pieces in this series use graphic forms, repeated 26 times, dots, lines, grids, concentric circles, segments etc, to represent the alphabet. Individual elements are differentiated in some way – removed, emboldened, coloured differently – to represent the individual letters within each alphabet that form the words.

Xmorse.

Morse code is rarely seen in ‘written’ form, but in my XMorse – ‘eXtended Morse‘ – series I’ve used it’s mathematically precise structure, or a derivative of it, to create simple, minimal graphic pieces. Dots and dashes are represented by different shapes, signifying the letters and words of the encoded message.

Tallys

Commemorative or celebratory, these pieces feature thousands of tiny lines, with each line, or tally mark, representing a day of someone’s life.
They either serve as a reminder to live each day to the full or, as in the case of my “A Life Well Lived” series (featuring pieces for Bowie, Prince, George Michael and Lemmy) as memorials to people who did exactly that, but who are sadly, no longer with us.

Geocodes.

These pieces start life as simple snapshots taken at places around the UK and abroad, captured for the colours and shapes within the scene. Once I have erased all recognisable features and reduced the images to simple washes of colour, I am left with pieces that hopefully conjure a familiar sense of place, time and mood.
The title of each piece contains the GPS location and a personal reference.
