  ... In working up images by drawing on his experience of life and his technical expertise he takes care to leave a magical space, which is an invitation to the viewer to draw upon his or her own experience to interact and share ... an extract from the Wakefield City Art Gallery 1995 catalogue for solo exhibition introduction text by Marian Scott, (artist and writer) Newcastle-upon-Tynne, September 1995

artist's statement
"...a notional construction that one may place on any matter, seems to me to be partly dependant upon points of view, points of reference and partly other things besides."   My concerns are mostly about looking, seeing, showing and sharing.   The arts seem to me to be much about constructions about amazing coincidences. Visual arts affords scope for work in play about notions and emotions.   Which is where the looking comes in.   The eye of the imagination conjectures compositions, develops notions with and from graphic gestures, as language in a culture, not so much by illusion but rather by allusion.   The seeing and showing is in the moment of making artwork . . .
