This exhibition is an eclectic match of sculpture and paintings. The sculptures are mostly simplistic metaphors, presented through raw and rustic mediums. There is a primitive quality to these works of art and influences are drawn from various third world cultures. A distillation of influences into a personal process of integration is the driver for these artworks.

The Paintings are acrylic and /or oils and cover a variety of themes from relationship to still life subject matter. The style incorporates a naivety and childlike feel, although the subject matter is far deeper. Vibrancy is a good descriptor here as the common element consistently across the exhibition is a high key palette.

There is a strong juxtaposition between the intensity of the paintings and the rustic character of the sculptures.
