I have always been a big Bowie fan, especially as a teenager. His music spoke to me as a kid growing up in a small town in the industrial north of England. It spoke to me about something beyond the mundane day to day and bleak expectations of my environment. After his death I was listening to a lot of his music and there is a track on the album Low called Sound and Vision that I love. These lines sprang to mind when I made this piece. They seem to be about forging your own identity in the world and of course, the color blue. “Blue, Blue, Electric Blue. That’s the color of my room, where I shall live. Blue Blue.” …….. In the Morphology series I am exploring the nature of transition and change through the medium of color and form. The limited palettes and simple forms of this series are an invitation to consider the nature of change. To embrace its inevitability and power and even learn to love and appreciate its many stages. Limited edition of 10. Signed and numbered by the artist.

As an artist I have always been acutely sensitive to my environment and physical space. My work is a personal response to and exploration of the forms, spaces, light and color that surround me every day. This was true growing up in the industrial north of England, and now in my adopted home of Los Angeles. I am fascinated by the power of color. How it can reach deep into the unconscious to affect emotions, transport us to another time or place, disrupt perceptions and change minds. My work is intended as a portal, a way to tap into the trans formative power of art through color.More About Artist
