SMOKINGBRUSH FINE ART

SCENIC ARTWORK:

Working as a freelance between 1991and 2002, I divided my time between commercial work in television and film, and my own self-generated art, which comprises landscape, life painting and portraiture. Until recently, I have always kept the techniques I employed in scenic art which are more graphic and abbreviated in nature, separate from those employed in my own fine artwork.
 
  I was working in an environment in which an actor in Tudor costume could share a joke between takes with a mutant sporting prosthetic claws, both sitting on the wing section of a plywood Spitfire. Such images of extraordinary contradiction very quickly became the norm in this studio environment, but I found these conjunctions constantly amusing and captivating; this vivid imagery now forms a reference archive for my current work.
