Artist Statement

You might say I am a post-postmodernist, my art is eclectic, I borrow from contemporary electronic media and from the past to create new digital images. The images I create I call ‘BODYSCAPES’, that is, landscapes of the human body and it's social condition.
These BODYSCAPES are created in the computer through a process where photographic images of the human body, either photographed by the artist or sourced and collaged from the public domain, are transformed into a simulated landscape that is richly varied in form and texture, in essence a virtual 3D matrix populated with simulated organic forms which in part are influenced by Bill Brandt’s enigmatic figures in the landscape and Man Ray’s experiments with light and form.
These landscapes of the body, while synthetic, deliberately remind the viewer of forms and textures from the natural world but at the same time confound with unexpected surrealism prompting questions like, where is the light coming from? Is it a body part or a rock form?
So BODYSCAPES are about landscapes in and of the body, this concerns both form and meaning encompassing social politics as well as politics of the body. In other words I present both the microcosm of the human body as well as the macrocosm of humanity, its strengths, weaknesses, beauty and ugliness.
My images can be confronting, I see them as a social realism.
Secrets, In the Name Of, Behind Bamboo, Envy, Texas Tea and other images from my previous exhibitions* probe the human condition but it is in the eye of the beholder where the meanings are to be found, they are different for each person who views my work. At one exhibition two women, friends of the same age viewed the same work, Waiting for Nesara, one saw life and birth the other saw death and decay.
Sometimes deliberately wrapped in ambiguity, there are many layers of meaning that might be imbued by the viewer. I invite you to use your imagination.
