Work on paper

The following work on paper is from various periods and I have grouped them according to the subject matter. Many of these works are figurative. The latest works on paper are about people, greed and loss of identity. It is an exploration inwards towards the hidden side of peoples emotions. Each face partially covers and partially reveals the person. There are contradictions behind each character – the face unfolds to reveal another angle in many cases. These figures show loneliness. They are fragile and small in a universe which is so immense and chaotic. On the one hand, they are swathed in darkness, at the same time as spot lit like actors in a play. They are like actors dressed up and afraid of the stage which awaits them.
