Artist Statement

With everything I have done in life including my art. I have attempted to be truly original. Nonconformist by nature. My work is created using explosives. Explosives have many applications, weapons of war, blasting rock in mining. Explosives are also used in medicines as well as cutting and hardening steel. Explosives are used in Fireworks to create spectacular effects. Unlike fireworks - that are gone in a few seconds - I have allways wanted to create everlasting pyrotechnic effects that can be ejoyed for eternity. The acrylic is blasted onto the canvass at 800 meters per second using explosives. It has taken me quite a few years to create this medium. I try and use colour and texture to create illusions and depth. My work is my feeling and inner soul at the time of creating each piece. I guess this is why much of my work is dark, allmost sinister. I do have happy days and this is reflected in the few colourfull paste style you will see in some of my pieces. I have never compared my work to other art and do not see the comparison between any artwork, I very much enjoy all art and all mediums, and belive I have created a medium I can call my own....
