Artist's Statement

Although grounded in 3 Dimensional and installation art, which has been my strength during the majority of my arts career, I have now fully embraced video as my medium of choice.

I have been seduced by the power of the visceral toolset that video provides.

Having fully explored this medium, I now have the ability to express a much broader range of emotionally driven concepts to a significantly wider audience.

My fascination with the past masters of Surrealism has assisted me to find a unique voice, one that comments on human interaction and its inherent conflicts.

I use video technologies to create environments and situations that cannot exist in the real world, yet they immerse the viewer and suspend disbelief.

Bio/Resume

I am a Londoner by birth and migrated to Southern California 25 years ago to pursue a variety of art themed careers including one as founder and Chairman of Virgin Interactive.

In 2007 I moved to New York City and studied video development and production at NYU.

Now working from my Brooklyn studio I have become deeply immersed in the New York arts community and am benefiting from the extraordinary creative stimulation that only New York can provide.

Several of my recent video works have been selected for screening by juries in Dublin, London, and the upcoming prestigious festival in Clermont-Ferrand France.
