"My paintings are a collection of forms put in place to create a sensation based around a subject; they do not always carry a direct meaning though possess a weighty essence of concept. I see them as musical scores, the instruments of the orchestra are played in such a way as to stir emotions at the will of the composer. Though above all they are paintings, they are about paint, its nature and how one can define forms and illusion, a fine direct medium for filling my primal needs.  

A background of street art, tattooing, electronic music and DJ-ing at raves are evident amongst the layers within the paintings.  They frequently reference vintage imagery which carries a romance, placing them in contemporary paradoxical situations, often with a twist of macabre drollery.
