My paintings of power stations explore the connectivity between man and wildness; by showing the exploitation and spoliation of the natural environment I suggest the paradoxes inherent between man and his dependence upon nature. I highlight some of the dangers of contemporary life experience: the contrast between a nuclear power station, with its potential for catastrophe and how we live with it and take it for granted. The paintings confront the complacency about the dangers in the hope that it triggers in the viewer questions about the future of the planet. Power is a necessary part of contemporary existence. Our struggle to develop a sustainable source of powers a challenge, at least at the scale required to maintain the quality of life we are used to. My paintings raise awareness of the mutual relationship that exists between our environment and our perceived needs. However, they also portray a sense of awe suggesting the sublime with a thrilling aesthetic.
