“The artwork is colourful and playful, deliberately humorous and at times ridiculous. Somewhere between ancient hieroglyphics and comic books or board games, the works present a kind of human portrait; not obviously male or female, old or young, the figures resemble totems, statues, chess pieces or key holes. There is just enough information to suggest the Human figure, the characters come to represent The Everyone or The Nobody. A painting takes on its own personality, it becomes more than the sum of its parts. Like a Frankenstein‚Äôs monster it wakes up, it speaks for itself, it answers back.” – David Shillinglaw
