"As a sculptor I draw a lot of technical and visual cues from the sculptural work being done in cinema special effects. It is that industry’s trailblazing use of new techniques and materials, and its exploration of radical new imagery, that has helped to fuel the direction of my own sculpture.
"The painting style that I have been developing over the past few years is currently [in 2005] going through another metamorphosis. When I began working as a fine artist I was very influenced by Surrealism. From this starting point, I began to develop a language of imagery and a technique that I called Subversive Realism. My paintings have lately rejected the unnatural imagery of Subversive Realism and I find myself freefalling in a new area of conceptual, hyper-realistic exploration."
