2022 - After Dark

I'm interested in the edges of perception, where objects transform or disappear in the inky blackness of the night. Where the mind starts to play tricks on you, and the imagination takes over. Where the line between reality and the fanciful is blurred.

The objects depicted in "After Dark" are solid and real, yet they evoke a fleeting moment in time.

Recollecting silent gathering places and the detritus that remains after everyone leaves; the paintings refer back to the height of the pandemic when the streets were empty and loneliness pervaded the world.

But nothing lasts forever. Change always comes.

After dark, comes the light.


The glowing perspex frames; which represent hope and life returning after the pandemic, self-illuminate even under minimal light levels; and throw varying intensity of pink shadows onto the wall behind depending on the light source.

Note: All works are available for sale as shown in the installation views with the Day-Glo edge, or in a clear perspex frame.
