Recent Work: Prints from 2017 and 2018 including the ‘Songs of the Earth’ series, Relief Sculptures 2017 (‘Eclogues’, smaller works sent to Japan exhibitions) & Reliefs, Sculptures and Prints 2015-16. The ground is literally becoming my canvas...

The new series of Songs of the Earth Masques explores the vision of an underworld of chthonic forces masked behind elaborate metal ‘faces’ composed of metal drain covers I photographed on my recent travels in Japan, Poland, Italy and the UK.
