Artist and Craftsman

Works 2 - Alternative Art

In my art the theme is my priority, with an understanding of art history and technical skill the portrayal is considered. After an extended period I choose my approach, always avoiding adherence to a single unified style to define everything.

Arthur C. Danto, philosopher and respected art critic, once wrote an interesting article on the painter Gerhard Richter. He describes a retrospective of Richter’s work in Chicago in 1987.

In essence, the variety in Richter’s work left him in the belief he was in a some sort of a group show, containing a number of artists work.

I hope the viewer can appreciate a like degree of variety in my work. As I dedicate the themes potency over an individualised style to capture all.
