Phantom Cities

These constructed relief paintings and photographs contrast the geometric city architecture of steel and glass with more natural forms and organic development.

City architecture is an expression of human spirit and achievement, full of energy and dynamism. And yet the immense size and harsh, artificial materials of many buildings marginalise humans to the point where our “image” of a city may often not contain any people. My work explores this paradox of how we have become phantoms in our own cities.
