I've just published on this website a new gallery, titled Vertigo. This is a new body of work that came out as a spontaneous explosion upon returning home from the hospital after suffering a recent stroke. One day, few weeks ago, completely out of the blue, I found myself lying on the floor of my studio, my life flashing before my eyes, wondering if I had just written my final chapter.
A week later, back home, once more sitting in front of my computer, looking back to that particular moment, I felt an urgent need to turn the page and push on with my visionary voyage through life.
The images within this gallery are the result of this overwhelming emotion, and serve as a kind of summary of my life's work so far, a grouping together of the various elements that have stimulated my creativity over the years.
Reality mutated into fantasy, industrial aerial photography transformed into a kaleidoscopic organised chaos, mixed with a touch of adrenalin, confusion and optical illusion – a synthesis of my life flashing before my eyes! The subject choice is also relevant within the overall context, “industry and transport” as seen from above; fishing boats and motorway barriers, factories and oil duct pipes, car parks and railway stations. The normal things in life, that we tend to take for granted, that all of a sudden, through fate or circumstance, take on a whole new meaning.
