These screenprints use ancient Indian historical sites as a starting point from which to develop imaginal structures that take on a life and logic of their own. A love of drawing always forms the starting point of any work. These may be made on site (whether at an ancient eastern ruin or an urban western derelict site) or painted directly onto a screen to form a stencil. They are then translated into the medium of screenprint with its limitless possibilities for layering colour, tone, line, text.

At its heart, these works embody deeply felt responses to colour.
