This series of works relating to architectural facades which began in 1982 while I was still a student at Goldsmiths, and I have continued ever since. The has become a very large body of work in this series. Here is a small selection from 2004 -2006

 

Context

The city itself is always changing; it is always in flux. Each aspect of city life seems to demonstrate specific characteristics, which can be developed into individual parts of the labyrinth, making up the images that will be used. A city experience consists of small unit blocks and cells which inter-relate and lock together to form the composite city identity. The city has moved from metropolis to megalopolis to the ecumenopolis. The city is everywhere, with lifeless design spreading upwards and forming a conundrum of physical objects in space.
