Here are photos from my new collection-
a series of 30 paintings exploring the effect of nuclear radiation on wilderness .
This series starts with depictions of 'untouched' nature -
as it progresses the animals and enviroment become increasingly
changed by radioative fall-out.

 About the exhibition: 
 NEONDERTHAL:

Contemporary Erotic Cave paintings.

Vacuum of sterile interior design invaded by ancien regime of venerated mega-fauna. Beastly nostalgia of small-jawed Homo to return to state of mighty Erectus. Imprisoned by lipsticks we long for a fantasy of the natural life. The smash-up between exterior and interior- a series of homo-erotic windows, glass shattering between inside and outside, wild and tame. Within these works I presented a synthesis between the neon of our present and the weight of our animal past- 
an inchoate new neon wilderness where man/beast collide in an endless power-play. By the end of painting this series of works, I had found out the answer to an interesting question that had wanted answering:

Just how different am I from a cave man?

And the answer, to my dismay, was VERY. The way I see these animals comes with a 21st century baggage-it is impossible to paint like those  ancient men of Lascaux , though I am homo sapien too. And we are homo sapien too.
