My work utilizes formal Chinese brushmarks but concentrates on their abstract rather than narrative function.

 

I appropriate classical Chinese iconography but exaggerate their aestheir aesthetic character.

 

The marks are those that taught from master to student for generations, always used in the same manner

 

and whilst I learnt the skill in the traditional way I manipulate them within the context of western art concerns.
