GESTALT: DLI Museum and gallery installation. Foreground video '2 chats with Andy' (RAF bomb disposal) click here for project blog
My current work is concerned with narrative construct and the interplay between what might be considered ‘fact’ and ‘fiction’. This was initially quite a formal concern but in recent years, with the popular adoption of the dubious concept of 'post-truth', it inevitably spills out to encompass all manner of everyday politics. 
I often use objects as my point of entry, where memory and recall become the initial material. Photography and video figure large, but I am concept driven so will use whatever medium seems appropriate to the subject. The Being Born and Latest News sections on this site give an idea of what I'm currently working on.
In recent years I have had one man shows at the DLI Gallery in Durham, Hartlepool Gallery and the Toffee Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne. These have been supported by Arts Council England. In 2018 I ran a video installation project 'The dog ate my wheelchair' with Disability North, supported by the Great Exhibition of the North. I was part of a group show titled 'Neither Use Nor Ornament' at OVADA in Oxford, spring 2019.
I was an early adopter of open reel b/w video production in the mid 70’s, with occasional residencies at broadcast TV stations and educational departments, notably 18 months at Brighton Polytechnic as the Arts Council’s Video Artist in residence. 

During the 80’s I exhibited and toured my work extensively around the world and, among many others, had my work shown in the ICA, Tate, Air and Serpentine galleries in the UK, and in many international festivals globally. 
Much of my work in the 90’s was commercial – working with computer graphics and 3D animation. I received a Royal Television Society award for television graphics in 1996 and was a winner of the Fuji professional distinctions photography awards in 2003/04.
