CURRENT AVAILABLE ARTWORKS
"Sign Language" Series
As a child of the 70’s, I was mostly raised by television and movies. Advertising and pop culture became my religion and the wisdom I gleaned shaped my sensibilities as an artist. As a result, my paintings are a carnival of colour and whimsy. This theatricality has been a through-thread in all my artwork.
Text has always been a central feature in my compositions. There is something seductive about typography. I love how a font can tell a story with a single flourish. Vintage lettering and signage gently manipulate us to feel a sense of longing for the past. Perhaps that is why my entire art career is shrouded in the bleary haze of pop-culture nostalgia.
My new series of paintings is the culmination of all my obsessions. By integrating iconic movie quotes into the landscape of well worn roadside signage I am merging pop culture, nostalgia and humour. This blend of elements creates something familiar and yet completely new!
**These are my latest pieces in this series. THEY ARE AVAILABLE FOR SALE. There are a number out at galleries (they are marked as such)! All the rest are available for purchase in my studio! ALSO, I have a huge section of SOLD works (link at bottom)!
