A selection of fine art paintings and writings organised into a surprising journey.

"There are strange and intense connections between a subject and a drawer, which exist also between the disparate imaginings that form the content of the work.

Thus the artist engaged in a particular vision is surprised, pole-axed even, by another associative vision, maybe a meteor, as something devastating from the real or unreal world.

The peculiar glee and struggle of making art is suddenly interrupted by a rogue memento mori, a reminder that life is precarious enough.

Making drawings or paintings is like exploring, feeling a way across a two-dimensional surface, bent into an illusion, making marks that are the residue of a path travelled which holds no ambition to arrive.

Making art remains better than being possessed by the spirit of a crow and a nameless dread."
