Walls

. I am excited by the potential of artworks to offer the viewer an immersive experience, whether it's the deep immersion in space and light of James Turrell, the epic statements of Anselm Kiefer, or the total

enclosure of Claude Monet's Les Nympheas - the waterlilies series which he made especially for l'Orangerie

in Paris, as a national monument. My ambitions are rather less elevated, but I am now developing wall pieces that can be produced to a height of a dozen feet and more, some of which are shown here. Each commissioned piece can be designed for a specific space, and directly printed onto canvas, silk, metal panels or wallpaper, as the client chooses. Inspired by the interiors of China and Japan, I am also looking to make screens to commission, in collaboration with a talented joiner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FLOW Beacon Hill Triptych 1 may not be wall-sized but it is nevertheless quite a big print. In fact,

at 5ft x 15ft, it was the maximum size print that could be produced on a single roll of Hahnemuhle photo rag paper at the printspace, in Shoreditch, east London. The immaculate print they created for me at the printspace was sold to a designer in Minneapolis, USA.

 

 

Details

FLOW Can Juan Miquelet was produced as triptych for a client of the distinguished

Chelsea-based interior designer Staffan Tolgard. It was printed on brushed aluminium by Alexander

at Senecio in Banbury, Oxfordshire. The surface irregularities of the brushing create marvellous

shifts of colour and illusions of depth, as the light changes through the day and into the evening. The

piece is  now installed in the family room of a home in Portugal.
