The prevailing visual issues and concepts which have evolved through my work as a painter, photographer and sculptor have focused on the emblematic object and the relationships invoked as a result of it's contextual environment.

As a figurative artist, representing the human body has established a thematic core that continues to explore gesture, communication, language and symbolic imagery.

This body of work that I refer to as The Enfolded Hands was initially created from a time in life that imposed the need for patience, time and reflection. From this position of solitude and observance, the hands were interpreted and posed as monumental objects, imposing, entwined and persevering. Within their mass and composure remain familiar gestures, studied and revealing. The experience of time, patience, anticipation, endurance, compromise, and comfort is embraced.

The enfolded hands became ponderable objects that one could hold in a time of need and explanation.
