Afro Series

My work is influenced by my strongly held beliefs and opinions on society, politics and gender. Structure and tribe. My early abstract paintings held testament to this as I immersed myself in the biological and geometric spaces and repeats that represented and evoked the psychological and genetic blueprints that brought about our existence.

As a gay man Patriarchy and the injustices of male power and influence are a particular drive for me.The dogma of religion towards sexuality and gender orchestrated and effectively managed by men. Race adds to this mix and my Afro series are totems of quiet rebellion. The geometric incessant quality of a curved line and the circle are a constant in these paintings in which women and androgyny look out at the viewer. Colours and the ideas of Arcadia and the garden are the stage on which these characters demand our attention.
