"Being 'upside down', is a notion established by the laws of gravity, not art."

Inversion

The collaboration with Tim Collier in Cardiff is ongoing and has produced a substantial body of work. The first portfolio of the images was greeted with great enthusiasm and shown in several galleries such as G39 and The Brew House. One image was used for the cover of Artists Newsletter and caused a great deal of critical interest with readers. It also inspired an open exhibition at the Stroud House Gallery with the theme "Inversion". There is now a website dedicated to the Inversion Project:

Inversion can be difficult accept "upside down" even though it might intrigue or stimulate us. We operate within certain limits, parameters, that are acceptable and this restricts and constrains our visual and imaginative potential. The notion of the "right way up" come from the way we move around and exist but it does not acknowledge how we are capable of viewing the world. These images directly and uncompromisingly turn us upon ourselves and our own banality, they force us to reconsider, react, redefine our own procedure and process of stability.
