These grotesque factory acres of filthy toxic grime encompass the landscape as far as the eye can see; demanding vast quantities of oil-refinement by-products to provide expendable objects for wealthy urbanites. There is some strange beauty in seeing what progress of man has done in attaining these facilities; there is the fascination of the nascent beginnings of the trappings of existence.

Byzantine Financial Ruins
Byzantine Financial Ruins2013Bitumen, Gold Leaf, Oil on Linen1000x700mm ‘Byzantine’ employs staccato lines of paint to depict the labyrinth complexities of the byzantine systems that govern society. Overshadowed by burgeoning storm clouds, the golden palaces shimmer with skeins of duplicity. The ornate embellishments adorning the structures of the citadel support each other as they crumble in wake of the storm. Shards of gold and ostentatious colours permeate the dark streets where the merchants lie. The buzzing of the inhabitants is at a frenzied pitch rising out of the darkness inside their gaudy shells.  Normal 0 false false false EN-GB JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Cambria","serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Cambria; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Cambria; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;}
