As seen from the perspective of modern man. Although a serious subject I have also found humour in it. The series traces the very beginnings of Man/Woman relationships throught the development, strifes, loves, losses, enigmas that continue to preoccupy mankind through the ages. I have used monoprint and collage. The use of accident in this process has been challenging and exciting especially as the pictures are figurative.


The series began with 'Stone Age Kiss'. Collage is a medium perfectly suited to change and 'Stone Age Kiss' emerged quickly. It set me thinkign about beginnings, which led onto the idea of Adam and Eve. It is a story that can be interpreted in many ways. For me it has come to represent the turning away from the simplicity of Paradise, though the first tentative explorations of adolescence and beyond, with the knowledge that fulfillment comes only with an acceptance that joy, love, happiness, exist side by side with sorrow, difference, uncertainty, paradox. The stuff of all our lives
