"Part of my Cupid’s Hit Squad series that records the journey a crack team of Cupid’s finest disciples. Contrasting imagery and techniques are used throughout my art, none more than this series. Images taken from classical statues all over the world form the players of this war. A war that’s moved on since the day of Cupid, a bow and arrow no longer suffices so now more precise tools of war are used to strike love in the hearts of mankind. Stencils are created painstakingly and with absolute precision, they sit on top of chaotic backgrounds painted with large brushes, rollers, my hands and often thrown directly onto the canvas.

 

‘Following Orders’ depicts that split second that fear and fatigue might cause to doubt yourself and your task in hand".
