From the artist

I am constantly involved with negotiating the often-tenuous line between realism and abstraction. I aim to delve into the mystery and colour of a site in a way that brings forth atmosphere and painterly quality. At this place I thought not only of what the future holds for me, but of how convicts must have felt as they sailed towards those eerie and foreboding cliffs.
