I have been printmaking since 1976, first using screen-printing and then, in 1999, working entirely digitally. The work has explored a wide range of techniques and subject matter. Current imagery includes imaginary worlds created in 3D programmes where objects can be made and ‘coated’ with my own imagery, from other prints for instance, or by using specially taken photographic textures – for a marble floor I have photographed the back of tombstones in my local cemetery; for wood textures I have used my own doors Read More and furniture. Nothing is quite what it seems. The results are large-format prints invoking otherworldly places or games for which no-one knows the rules. Other prints are wholly abstract, either formal if irregular and complex patterns or highly expressive and textural. All the prints have elements of previous imagery at their heart forming a kind of palimpsest where previous imagery is not wholly erased. A kind of memory that persists and pervades the final image. All are printed on my own large format printer using the finest quality pigmented inks and acid free papers.
