I am exhibiting new work that relates to ruins.  There is a large painting based on the area
around Docklands... a  metal scrapyard, trashed cars and abandoned tires and number
plates.  A kind of montage in of general debris with automobile origins.  Alongside this will
be photographic pieces.  These are of vintage and modern cars in their correct and intact
settings but the photos are ruined through a chemical process of my own to appear out of
time and part of an instant archive.
