Figure in the urban landscape, solo show at Robin Gibson Gallery 2008

These etchings and paintings were created between 2007 and 2008. The work explores the figure in the urban landscape depicting vernacular scenes from my everyday life.  The characters perform mundane rituals of urban life, in transit, having lunch or simply waiting. Not only does the landscape define us, we also play and important role in defining the landscape that we inhabit.
