I am interested in how technology impacts on our lives and its part in the construction of the social world. My first series of pictures is about how we view the world through our computers--a new cartography for the cyber age. This lead me on to the subject of surveillance, the theme of my next exhibition, and especially how certain agencies view the world and its inhabitants through satellites and computer technology. Taking this very real social issue and abstracting it into pictures is what I have attempted to do. 

 

This subject of technology and humanity can also be found in my music and the concepts therein, such as A World Without Music and Not Quite the 21st Century. While they have a distopian theme running through them there is the indefatiguable spirit of humankind that will always shine through. I believe art, in all its forms, holds the key to possibility, to beauty and to ugliness and everything in between. And just as the universe is infinite, so too is art and all things creative. 

Original art and limited edition high-quality prints are available.
