I love how you can go from bright retro social pop culture references to dark moody surrealist landscapes at the drop of a hat, yet they sill both have an umistakeable common heritage. I also like how they both 'deal' (for want of a better term) with different periods in NZ history Stunning work as always

Thanks Hewey, I think the period shift comes from the way a my paintings develop their own story as they unfold. I don't always know what's going to come out the other end but when it feels right I just go with it. Besides, the amount of energy I would put into a painting like 'Ten Cent Mix' (re: bag of mixed lollies (candy)) as opposed to 'Kehu' differs somewhat. Pysically very taxing, so there's nothing like a moody backdrop to mung out to. Ha. As a body of work, it's a bit incongruous, but what the hey!, ultimately, I do them for me after all.

Kia ora!!

Surrealism is one tough nut to crack ... yet you seem to create a sense of detail and believability that exceeds the subject matter. You do have a unique talent!! Keep up the good work.
