When asked to comment or explain the basis for my work, there is never
one single concept or philosophy but rather lots of different elements which
make up my practice. For example scenes of desolated cities from films like
Planet of the apes, Logan’s run, as well as the cinematography of Fritz Lang
most notably metropolis. “An Implied History”

In one way or other this obsession has fed the majority of my work,
deliberately post apocalyptic, not quite the statue of liberty, but with a
similar ethos.
