Symmetry, balance and nothing. (Safety, 2014 Mixed media on canvas, 61cm x 92cm)

With time signals change. Language acquires new meaning, attitudes evolve as does the world around us. Everything moves and stands still at the same time. We can interpret the very same surroundings as replete with wondrous meaning or permeated with the signs of imminent doom. Art shares the same fertile ambivalence. Whatever we create we can see in it everything that fascinates us about life itself, our minds and the world we live in. Colour, symmetry and balance or indeed its exact opposite can ignite the void for a while if we so wish. It's easy and difficult at the same time, just as it should be.
