In his own words:
"I am an artist, in awe of this strange planet and like many, I find myself at times wrestling with (and drawn to) the polarised nature in which humanity expresses itself.
I rarely have a particular medium in mind, or how I will communicate this expansive endeavour, and am always open to the possibilities of how each artwork should be researched and represented. One work may require collaboration, culminating in a piece of ‘Ceramic and Sound'. Another may ask for a solitary approach, then represented through ‘Photography and Word’. Each concept dictates each exploration.
At present, Sculptural form is foremost in my desire to express myself creatively. I tend to have a philosophical approach to art, in that my interests go beyond created form. In particular the Logos - the so-called divine principle of reason and judgement associated with the animus.
This interest has led to a continued questioning of the ‘vessel’ as a natural object containing the intangible, and as an expression of humanity within varied cultures throughout history."
