'A celebration, remembering the energy and vision of the Festival of Britain in 1951. Although the festival was staged before I was born, my parents were setting up a new home, to build a family and to build a future. The colour palette developed by designers in the 50s provides the basis for the feel of the work, and was employed in the design of so many of the everyday objects I remember as a boy and were born out of the ethos developed from this landmark event for the British people.


'This a personal interpretation using the colour palette I feel I grew up with. A series of oils on board.'



'A series of abstract oils, painted on board. Suspended between two states, the positive and negative charge above and below an imagined horizon representing liminal spaces where anything might change state.'
