Selection Of Work From 1996-98

Prior work was figurative, and dealt with personal issues such as family, death and separation. After I graduated from art college my work went through a period of distortion & transforming of the figure, I wanted it to almost merge with the surface. I guess it was sort of cathartic.

At the time I was strongly influenced by Expressionism, particularly the Abstract Expressionists like De Kooning & Auerbach.fffff
