My Next Exhibition, Leviathan, Opens November 2




My next exhibition, ‘Leviathan’ will be held at the wonderful Beinart Gallery on the 2nd of November.
I’ve used biblical imagery, gothic motifs, and specific character tropes from Herman Melville’s classic novel, Moby Dick to reflect on the dichotomy of power, narcissism, and the natural world.
The series of paintings utilize hand-made sculptures and collage to create the imagery.

Come one and all – I will be there to have a chat!

It’s been a long while since I’ve written anything even remotely academic, but here it is: My first refereed article in an arts journal: ‘Instances of Anomaly,’ In ‘Double Dialogues’ no less!
My Painting ‘Techtonica’ even made the cover.

My thanks to Professor Ann McCulloch, Dr Kathryn Keeble and everyone else involved!
