"As an artist respectful of the use of natural materials such as local timbers and stone, my practice has become weighted towards marble as I work using traditional methods and techniques. There is nothing ephemeral about stone or that which results in producing a permanency to outlive most other pundits. The marble I caeve has metamorphosed over hundreds of millions of years and contains fossil remnants and I reincarnate to find a new meaning beyond my existence. In departing from a previous aesthetic, I return to a more familiar abstract construct through a schematic theme of cross-hatching space in a formalist arrangement of free-floating and interveaving diagonals that seemingly defy the draw of gravity. As a segment taken from traditional patterns and other inherent folklore symbols, the form is heightened to a grander scale, and , as a graphic exercise, it no less originates from my own drawing technique. As a symbol, it is ubiquitously found in ancient Indo-European decorative motifs that span from the Western Occident to the Eastern Orient, emerging from an understanding of celestial and earthy natural cycles containing narratives reinterpreted into a matrix geometry." As a Melbourne based artist, he has completed nine exposes of his own work and has participated in exhibitions throughout Australia and overseas. He has lectured, published and travelled extensively. His works are found in public and private collections, and, has completed major public art commissions for the City of Moonee Valley, City of Bayside and the City of Casey, Melbourne.
