Biography

Theatre of the Mind

There is a narrative running through the work which reveals a feeling of isolation and being at odds with the world. The art contemplates the Absurd and the search for meaning in a world seemingly without point or reason.cardboard-king

In our subconscious we play to an imaginary audience and to remain in this subjective reality where we edit our own scripts and design our own sets is tempting.

But instead these thoughts and musings are externalised through drawing , sculpture and painting with the outcome often resembling a carnival sideshow that reflects the strangeness and grotesquerie of a curious world.

Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
