Other work

These pictures all depict algae and mostly date from my final year at Sunderland. These works are simultaneously figurative, because they all depict common organisms found in freshwaters and terrestrial habitats in Britain and Ireland, and abstract, because the subject matter lies beyond the boundaries of most people’s sense of reality.
The first three images are all of algae common in gardens: a green film scraped from a garden fence, the red crust formed at the bottom of a bird bath and a gelatinous growth on a gravel drive.
