The Lament is an investigation into the nature of things and is a celebration of the democracy of images. Questions are asked though few answers given.

The Lament is part fiction and partly autobiographical. The pictures look at the unusual and the perverse. They make strange connections and exploit the unexpected. Nothing is as it seems, though we nevertheless sense that there is a truth in everything. Mystery prevails and it is up to the viewer to bring his or her own life experience to the reading of the work.

The Lament deals with loss, change and the inevitability of impermanence. All thoughts, emotions and circumstances that each and every one us have experienced and have dealt with in our lives. There is sexual misadventure too. Yet despite the apparent angst, I'm not about to slit his wrists anytime soon: a wry sense of humour runs through the work and if you look hard enough you might even spot a sense of optimism.

Our copies come with an exclusive signed 6"x4" print (numbered edition of 10 only), see image.
