The images created in this series are the result of the travels and experiences of being a contemporary History Painter.
Painting is washed in History... I see it as a means of communicating the consciousness of the times which we travel through... This consciousness is atavistic in that like an iceberg we float on the top of much baggage that has gone before. A history painter attempts to re-package this information and re-present it through the kaleidoscope of his own mind.
