My efforts to cultivate the imagination and the creative project informs my art.
My early influences include the Surrealists of the 20th century, notably Max Ernst with his narratives and fantastical imagery. The Surrealists, with their reactionary spirit influenced by the tumult of the early and mid – 20th century, could be argued are as relevant today as they were then. My role as an Architect, love for history, cultural studies and travel are also influential. I find intriguing the role of the professional artist and the artist’s appropriation viz-a-vis the architect’s role in society. Fundamental to my creative and artistic endeavors is the belief that well crafted, imaginative Art and Architecture both give life meaning and make the journey worthwhile.
