Portfolio of Older Works
(page under renovation, tread patiently)
My work is and always has been about connections in an increasingly connected/disconnected world.
Having recently moved from big cities to the mountains of France, I have come full circle from an earth scientist, to an oil painter of urban scenes, to a digital painter of urban scenes, and now back to my roots as an investigator of our relationship with the natural environment, only this time with a paint brush and a blow torch. I still love digital painting as a means of capturing fleeting moments, gestures, and expressions in time, usually en pleine air. However, it is increasingly technology that keeps us so disconnected, and dislocated from our surroundings, as we plunge deeper and deeper into the black holes caused by algortihms seeking our very souls. The rugged beauty of my surroundings call for mediums more organic and visceral. They call for a connectedness, and a renewed awareness of their fragility in the face of increasing challenges caused by our very disconnectedness. I invite you to join me on my journey of reconnecting to all that I am passionate about, and to all that furnishes us with our means to survive, and those moments of hope, and optimism to fuel us all forward on a more sustainable path.
A moment has a history, a future, a context; to be savoured, to be lived.
