"Architectural,sculptural and sometimes abstract expressionistic;these works do not necessarily need a thicket of impenetrable critique to appreciate them,even though they can fully absorb such an envelopment.Employing such diverse methodologies as,reverse photo realism,cinematic abstract expressionism and irreal sculpting;the works seek to anarchistically and synaesthetically reorder......colour,mental formations,light,species identity,sound,ideation and indeed ideology,form,interiority and exteriority,material and space;to undermine the prevailing totalitarian indoctrination of perception.This profoundly political project is presented as a necessary;indeed essential,first step on a path to interior perceptual expansion............"
