The vintage series
The vintage series of paintings have developed from earlier work on re-enactment and the need to look to the past for answers for the problems of today in a troubled economic climate. The paintings should not be seen as a simple depiction of the past. There is a strong sense that these are, in fact, modern day people and part of a thriving 'vintage' scene. This is achieved by using a modern block canvas format, using bright colours, some element of visual distortion or by the introduction of small clues within the painting.
