NEW WORK 2016-2017
Real art doesn't come from a desire to dabble, placate, dribble daub or defuse, but from an inner necessity to disturb, destroy, create, decry, ignite the ego. Scream and fly, to plough the unconscious, shock and shimmer. To plant the fuse and explode the eye.
The new work represents a series started in late 2016 & early 2017. There is a major stylistic shift that emphasises drawing, mythology vibrant colour... and, as always, sound craftsmanship.
" 'The Ouroboros'... the central snake that's consuming and consummating:
his motifs echo images ranging from The Last Judgement, Hindu Heaven and Hell,
along the Death-defying Day of the Dead,
Representing the dialectic between birth, death and the love of life etched with his exotic,
the excremental and an earthy eroticism."
Jeff Sawtell - London
