Aether Worlds – more paintings and planets

The Aether Worlds series has now developed into a total of 12 paintings and 18 planets...I find the use of oil paint to create different effects absolutely fascinating and the "Aether Worlds" series has given me a great "blank canvas" to work out methods using palette knives and the dynamic results that can be achieved... and a few brushes here and there.

The Mechanical Paradise continued…

After the initial series of "The Mechanical Paradise", I continued this theme with new paintings "Andromeda" and "Terpischore". These paintings use a different design and layout, full figures integrated with the clockwork AI, within an interior cut off from the natural world that lies beyond.

The Mechanical Paradise

I initiated a new series of oil paintings, just as the London lockdown started in spring of 2020. "The Mechanical Paradise" uses techniques derived from the old masters to create these surreal faces, combining heads with elaborate clockwork mechanisms and AI.

Open Studio, Muswell Hill, London, November 2019

This November I am having an Open studio at the converted arch in Muswell Hill, that I've been working in over the last few years. In fact I'm giving it a complete refurb, as we have increased the amount of space that we will use and I'll be whitewashing the interior and organising my paintings, drawings and prints with a lot more wall space to display works to visitors and collectors, so looking forward to unveiling all of this ! I'll have a few glasses of wine, coffee and soft drinks / nibbles for visitors and I'm hoping to make it all quite social...
