Who are we, what does it mean to be human and what if anything, makes us different from other species on our planet?
Since I graduated in 1999 I have continued to investigate this conundrum mainly through my paintings.
But over the last two years of unresolved medical problems and self-doubt I lost my way as an artist.
So I went back to basics and joined a Life Study group. The work on paper “World of her own” celebrates that woman’s indomitable spirit.
Humans are obsessed with appearance and one-upmanship. “Fashionista” a cat with a ring through its nose is cruel analogy of this.
The painting “Silver Surfer” portrays an older man’s focus and determination to understand modern technology.
