'This expanding body of work is shaped by an ongoing exploration enquiring into the vulnerability that can often be witnesses within the life of the artist. These works are in direct response to the life and writings of the highly acclaimed dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. In 'The Diary of Vaslav Nijinsky' the dancer recorded a six week period in early 1919 when he was loosing touch with reality. These painting, alongside the film works, 'Solitude' and 'Insects and Parrots' attempt to express the sensitivity and vulnerability of this remarkable man who was possibly the greatest dancer of our time.'
