Since completing my MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in 1999, I have developed a complex digital collage technique to recreate Old Master paintings and prints in a contemporary idiom. My starting point is an intensive encounter with a city or place, to absorb an impression and gather a huge image library. From this resource, hundreds of photos are selected and meticulously spliced together to ‘construct’ my story, creating a seamless new ‘fictional’ space. The works have a resonance with place, history and culture, and deal with the passage of time and the changes to a landscape, fusing contemporary life with a sense of history, and an underlying social narrative
