SUBJECTS OF SPECIAL INTEREST

 

I mostly paint old vehicles ( such as cars and trains ) but these are only one part of my overall interest which is dereliction, or more precisely, the poignancy of dereliction.

 

The subject of dereliction can be interpreted very widely and can cover almost anything manufactured or built by man which is subsequently discarded and left to decay.

 

I am not sure where or how this interest began but it probably has much to do with my childhood just after WW2. My memories of that time – bombed factories, abandoned military installations and the alike combined with modern reference material has proved to be an endless source of subjects for me.
