Paintings showing scenes of a dystopian world, based upon urban and industrial places with subtle dark narratives running through them.
A continuation of my theme “Resistance in the face of Aggression”, these pieces are based upon nuclear bunkers, primarily the Secret Bunker in Fife, Scotland which I visited and took sketches and photographs as the basis of my paintings, which are all oil on canvas.
Here is a series of portrait figure study paintings using the reductive technique in oil on card and panel. The theme examines figures with covered faces such as people in gas masks or pilots in helmets and breathing apparatus during war time or riot police in visors.
