"(Study For) The Future Czars Of Popular Kultur" is interested in exploring the emotional response of moving from one culture to another and continues to pursue my fascination with the relationship between symbols (for example language and mythological symbolism) and the possibility of meaning that they contain. How one series of lines can be immediately recognised as holding meaning to someone while to another they are (at that moment) meaningless.
These systems of symbols which we have created and use to communicate have a fragile and ephemeral nature. Words lose their 'original' meaning and change. Languages are lost, discovered and created. Symbols which were once taboo and progressive become pedestrian and mundane.
I work and re-work my paintings adding, removing layers until a form appears which I then develop upon.
