Unfication resonates sincere core values and is key connecting real people. The abstract mind merely translates & shapes.
The scent of Amsterdam was in the air as I drove into my hometown. A scent so distinctive; a joy so uncompromising. The pavements on either side were sweet and gay with stones not laid evenly. They misfit but come together as one.
Just as the people of Amsterdam; they shout and silently wonder, they fight and ultimately love; they stand up for their rights and then again not. The joint that connects them is 'the love for the city'.
The bricks on the wondrous canals share that same feeling. Criss and cross, high and low, crooked or perfectly matched; all flushed with grout to become a whole.
It's that grout that is the focus of my work as it is essential for becoming ONE.
As an artist one needs a place to exhibit.
Luckily I found one. A selection of my work can be seen at Restaurant Pastini. Go and have dinner & wander around to view my work in a homely habitat.
If you fancy something, they'll wrap it for you before dessert.

Every brick has a different texture & style. The joint connects them & is most important.
Soils differ but come together as one and their connecting intersection is coloured in metal leaf.
Turning pictures into sculptures. A different approach to the same philosophy.
