Gas Street Basin
My work explores architecture and modernism. With influences from artists Picasso and Klee, and from Cubism to Bauhaus I float between the recognisable and the abstract, trying to find a unique view or sense of a place.
I take my inspiration from the built environment. My work focusses on cityscapes and landmarks. Most of my work depicts places in the Midlands.
I employ geometric forms and patterns to produce a hard-edged graphic style. Working as a designer for 20 years gave me a unique approach to my process, with unique results.
What starts out as a pencil sketch, of either a real view or a montage of individiual elements brought together, is finally developed as a digital artwork. The final piece is a giclée art print.
