New ideas that have begun to emerge within my work could not be executed in paint. The initial ceramic works have taken the form of vases, urns, and figures which tug with dark humour at chords of association with primitive cultures and pagan offerings while echoing the emotional landscape of my paintings.
The artist has been always attracted to exotic landscapes, Hellenistic mythology and civilizations overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
I went to The Berlin Museum of Medical History to look at preserved segments of brain tissue. I was struck by how complex and intriguing the objects were at the museum, so still and monochromatic.
