Welcome to a selection of my work.
The pieces included have been done over the past few years. These are a combination of an image transfer technique and acrylic paint on canvas. These range in size from A1 to A0. The later pieces, ‘Ranch House Café’, ‘Petrol pumps’, and ‘Red Lamp Café are wholly painted acrylic on canvas.
As an art student in the late 60’s early 70’s, I was intrigued by the use of found images by the Pop artists. I was particularly influenced by Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine and Jasper Johns.
Upon reviewing the work I have during recent years, I find that I have been using found images, as opposed to photographs I have taken myself, more and more often. The selection is intuitive – I probably choose one from hundreds I look at for each piece – but I do feel that they are all evocative and sometimes nostalgic.
These works appear to fall into three categories; American Landscape, Holidays, and Space exploration. There is a connecting theme; the pioneering spirit of humankind, ‘to boldy go’, to explore the unknown. A little like an artist starting with a blank canvas, I guess.
