ARTWORK AND COMMISSIONS:

1. MOCK HOLOGRAPHIC SCULPTURES

The mock hologram sculptures are like no other art medium. They resemble a hologram. They are a unique  and complex construct comprising a number of stages of development. These stages include filming a performance based on the criticality of the artwork. Making a specific ceramic sculpture (free-standing or wall relief) relevant to the theme and then digitally mapping and combining the different elements to create one physical three dimensional installation. These works have been shown at a number of prestigious galleries including The Royal Academy and Tate Modern, London. They have also been shown on Sky News TV. 

 

2. PAINTINGS AND MULTIMEDIA

The paintings comprise a varied selection of  oil paintings, collages and multimedia works. The themes range from portraiture, landscapes to abstract expressionist works on canvas, acrylic and wood.  

 

3. COMMISSIONS TALKS AND PRESENTATIONS

The artist has produced specific works for large and smaller organisations as well as individual clients. He has also given talks and made presentations about art and technology at a number of venues including a talk on 'technological Utopia?' at the Royal Academy of Art Late event.
