Press Release

The art works for “Ocean Views for the Aesthetic Traveller” were created in the latter part of 2013.  They were inspired from a concurrent series (“Me and Mu Chi’s six persimmons”) where I was studying early ink painters of the Sung period in China (1127 – 1279AD). Most of my working life has been, to some extent inspired by a Zen Buddhist approach to art, especially the flung ink style of painting.  A further inspiration has been the action paintings of the American School in the 1940s – 1960s.

Press Release

Remind Me or 999 lost thoughts or don’t ask me I haven’t got a clue” is a series of text driven visual art works which invites the viewer to participate with the artist to discover his lost thoughts, involving diary notes, art techniques, other artists, politics, art concepts, philosophy, art, academia, life, time – pretty much everything that goes into living and dying in glorious colour.  Basically a self help manual to survive as an individual in society where contradiction and general malaise appears to be the norm. Using such media as hologram, mixed media, scrambled words, fried humour and irrationality as well as lost thoughts.

Remind me – who can you ask when no one knows?    Read more
