Process philosophy invites us to look at longer stretches of time, blurred boundaries and connected relations. 

My art practice, is rooted in my interest in existential philosophical and sociological/ political/ ecological – climate challenges, but not limited to themes around:

the self’ ‘consciousness’, and  ‘collective consciousness’. 

My recent and current portfolio, is influenced by secondary scientific research and observations, that strongly indicate that we are living in the ‘Anthropocene‘ age, where human activity dominates and tries to control nature, losing sight as field Ecologist Dr Stephen Woodley suggests…’We are part of nature and we do not exist without it..if Biodiversity disappears, so do people’ 

My approach is based largely on drawing from self-experience, supported by secondary research, and from a conceptual process of enquiry.

My style is expressive, mostly figurative, recently leaning towards partial abstraction. I see myself as an expressive painter, in so far, as distorting form for expressive effect, using painterly brush strokes and using colour, as a means of representing emotional experience. All other mediums, (other than a painting) ,that I choose to experiment with,  I approach from a painterly perspective.

Biologist David George Haskell writes..

‘We are all – trees, humans, insects,birds,bacteria – pluralities. Life is embodied network. These living networks are not places of omnibenevolent oneness. Instead they are where ecological and evolutionary tensions between co-operation and conflict are negotiated and resolved.’

The pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus provides the most famous image of process metaphysics.

‘It is not possible, he says, ‘to step twice into the same river’
