Happy New Year

...and so we arrive in 2009. And thankfully, back to creative work.

The piece shown here has a working title of 'Someone to watch over me'. It has derived from the 'sense of place' project and is the combination of images - a winter walk, frost on trees, an iced cobweb on the car and statues on a building.

I am increasingly driven by the sense of time passing and how art functions as an expression of this - giving voice to what you feel about your own small place in the world, an expression of self. How you feel aesthetically, politically, emotionally etc. Otherwise there is no point to it really. Obviously, I have started the New Year with nihilistic tendencies.
