Artist Statement

I seek to awaken the deeper meaning of humanity's journey through time. The re-use of discarded materials and objects and my other recycling efforts are attempts to tread lightly, thereby reducing my carbon footprint on the planet.

 

The elevation of the throw-away and the reject to art status is to me a metaphor for the marginalised, racialised, oppressed peoples and cultures that I resurrect from destruction and near-invisibility to re-engage now as art.

 

My acrylic paintings, mixed media collages, installations and reconstructions are a continuous cycle of reflection on man, his engagement with other human beings and his relationship with his environment.
