As the eye glances over the paintings, an initial perception may simply be to recognise an abundance of sumptuous colour, pattern and texture, (a sub-principle of the work). The often narrative subjects and allegorical details are drawn from the cognitive experiences of the artist, who has spent many years amidst the visual, emotional, audible, tactile and interpersonal stimuli which bombard us all on a daily basis. The main principle of each work is to provide the viewer with a prolonged visual experience, which draws them ever deeper into the content of the paintings, evoking thought, feelings or discussion whilst hopefully alluring the weathered eye to fresh understanding.
