These paintings were created as testimonials of a metropolis in the midst of the pains of growth, vibrant witnesses of a city in the future, advance images of its own gestation.
The series touch on that element of concepts of the future which is very much concerned with isolation and being alone after all has faded and left. The works show a city devoid of its population with usually only one being in existence. However, despite the understanding that as a result loneliness should abound, there is a communication between the lone being in the landscape, the sky, the posters and billboards, the structure of the city itself. As such we are left with beings that are not actually lonely, but simply alone.

The accompanying music leads one into the painting suggesting a sound which is appropriate and resonant with its time. The deep, not wholly auditory, instruments and sounds resound like long forgotten memories which should be of the past yet are of the (or indeed a) future. Subtle structures using a range of high frequencies determine this element of memory and insight, whilst the seeming simplicity and openness of the tracks allows the listener/viewer to be more personally involved. The music completes the paintings like a soundtrack for a film. They create yet another dimension in which to explore. It allows the viewer to focus on the abstract narrative and emotions in the paintings, while letting the viewer to journey further into the paintings.
