Why Frames?

I started adding frames to my drawings and painting whilst studying at Liverpool. Most of what other students were painting were large abstracts on unframed canvases. The opposite of that was small figurative pictures in frames. Starting with a very small homemade sketchbook filled with fine-liner framed drawings I found that the compositions were more interesting. The frames reinforced the images, allowing elements of trompe l'oeil and decoration.

These artworks were self-contained and I realized I could place many frames on one canvas to make a mosaic. Each element added up to a final imaginary picture. Instead of a traditional “Frozen in time” design, I dissected each component and framed it alone, giving it the same importance as the other items in the composition. Mixing these images together the observer forms the picture in his mind. If you had fifty pictures in one large mosaic the combinations of the thoughtograph are endless. Each person sees what he wants to see and his final inner composition would be different from another. When I paint someone I do not make a traditional portrait. Instead I paint elements of his life and personality. For example: his work, pets, car and favorite football team. A person is formed from all the small elements.
