Who are you?

2009

Acrylic on canvas
1.52mx1.22m

It doesn’t interest me if there is one God
or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel
abandoned.
If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know
if you are prepared to live in the world
with its harsh need
to change you. If you can look back
with firm eyes
saying this is where I stand. I want to know
if you know
how to melt into that fierce heat of living
falling toward
the center of your longing. I want to know
if you are willing
to live, day by day, with the consequence of love
and the bitter
unwanted passion of your sure defeat.
I have heard, in that fierce embrace, even
the gods speak of God.

Collages

These bold collages span one to two square metres. The collages embody emotion and movement through the layers and allow the viewer to interact with the work visually and through touch… The use of acrylic paint makes the work relatively hard-wearing…

Portraits

The beauty of expressions... Pitt is a soft charcoal that allows for lovely textures and contrasts, making it well suited to portraiture. It continues to be my favoured medium.

Paintings

The paintings are abstract and convey a mood or play on a theme…
