‘I walk tidelines picking up rubbish, documenting it particularly with photos and I then regurgitate how I feel into paintings and their stories. I am quite mad but then our world has become a planet of plastics including the acrylic paint I use.’

Artist Statement

Each painting holds a story set in the future, a sci-fi regenesis of a paradisiacal plastic world.

The sun is expanding but the earth is heating up faster as human instigated climate change comes into effect.

We trashed the planet with polluting plastics and wrote our own death sentence.

From the collective unconscious life forms are evolving out of the plastisphere and I, the artist shamanistic storyteller, channel the expression of our legacy.

The planet Plastikos (Terra remoulded) is a brutal, ever morphing environment where echoes of past forms are mimicked in colourful display.

Each painting tells a story set in our future ‘big picture’ in the politics of interconnectedness and is birthed from the acrylic #motherpaint.

#motherpaint creates outlines that form out of imagination, feeding from the well of collective unconscious stimulated by the artist, as shaman, picking up seaborne trash off tidleines.
#motherpaint links each painting.  It is created from excess, plastic acrylic paint from each painting. Each painting begins with the #motherpaint to create the composition.  It has been a mid-teal colour, though its child, which is a back-up, had gone from brown to grey and is still evolving like its parent.
#motherpaint means that each work stands on the head of the others that came before like a starter dough when making sourdough bread. Each painting is offspring and enters the collection.

It is part of regenesis and a core part of my painting practice.
