Provocateur indigo 2019relief etching67 x 88 cm, edition 30
This work references the genres of still life, and natural history painting. It is drawn from observation and modified by imagination.
Provocateur is a synthesis of a number of things, human and animal, life and death, beauty and the macabre, nature and ‘nature morte’, among others
These things are seen as opposites, but when distilled in an imaginative space, the synthesis results in ambiguity and irony, a vexed expression of reality.
It is a metaphysical reality with an underlying reflection on the nature of, and vital connections that exist in the world we inhabit
