Working brush magic...

Art is a visual medium.  It is a means of translating ones personal thoughts and concepts into a form which can be seen by others.  Its meanings are symbolic, and interpretation depends as much on the skill of the artist as it does on the psychology of the viewer.  Art is subjective – whereas one person may adore Damien Hurst's 'Half a dead cow' and call it art, another may revel in the geometric and mathematical illustrations and illusions of MC Escher.

 

My own personal angle to art is that I want the viewer to 'look beyond the obvious'. Much of my art consists of many layers and symbols.  I like to paint in the photo realistic style, but realise that sometimes this has little commercial value, so I am adaptable. I would love to splash paint on a canvas and call it art, but I am my own worst critic.
