‘Density of darkness. My favourite hour, that ambiguous pause between darkness and dawn when you sense the imminence of light.’ 
David Gatiss

Convoy of boats, (detail) mixed media

This exhibition is in memory of the artists’ father. The large drawings are reflective of the coal seam in the UK mine his father worked. Many of the sculptural pieces reference his father’s time in the navy. Other more figurative works detail the family life of a coal miner.
