About the Artist
Originally inspired by Brutalist architecture of famous London landmarks, a multitude of images have been brought together to impart the surfaces, textures and angles experienced when observing such buildings.
The Barbican series conveys the sense of solitude that often accompanies exploring the walkways, stairwells and corridors of this space. Buildings surround the viewer and a multitude of viewpoints distorts the sense of space and convey a sense of unease.
