Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exodus ch 20 v 7
. Sometimes I think that it is a good idea to set out aims and intentions. Sometimes I don't. Some people want to put labels on my work. Worse than that some people want me to put labels on my work. Labels at best are just a guide and cannot be definitive. I just depict what I see whether it exists in the visual world or not. My view of the world as a fractured and distorted place is often reflected in my work.

My pictures have evoked varied reactions from different people they range from:

"Thought provoking and stimulating."

"Whoever painted that must be raving mad and needs locking up."

and even
"I like them."

Then there's my Mum's view
"Why don't you paint nice scenes?"

and my personal favourite
"Disturbingly beautiful."

Have a look for yourself and see what you think.
