Big Pier painting by Nik Chinook

I paint places and spaces that prompt
narratives in my imagination
.
Imagined tales, adventures and modern fears that splinter off from the deluge of media snippets, sound bites, and fake news through which we all swim.

And I relish the industrial and technological environment that provides the stage set for our imaginations.

I express these places and fragmentary tales through ink and paint to create images that might be damaged glass-plate negatives from some Victorian archive, a sketch from a game-designer's ipad or maybe pages torn from the ragged remains of an engineer's journal.
