  • The Artist’s Studio (107 x 107 x 84 cm)   1980-1985
    exhibited Royal Academy Summer 2003
    The theme is “glamour” and how illusions of great opulence can be made against very prosaic backgrounds. In this the work-a-day environment of the painter's studio is the background in which he is creating an image of luxury. This springs from my experience of working in film studios. This also involves a simple self-reference – i.e. an image of the main subject is included in the total sculpture.
  • Self-Referring Sculptor's Studio (107 x 126 75 cm)
    1996-97
    A companion piece to the Painter’s Studio. A much more complex version of the idea of self-reference, with several images of the total sculpture.
  • Penny (124 x 89 x 55 cm) 1973-92
    This sculpture is a recurring portrait of Penny, the begonia and the environment in which she sits.
  • The Library (76 x 137 x 51 cm) 1966-85
    This piece illustrates two moments in time. In the first, the figure chooses a book, in the second we see her reading.
  • The Music Room (74x124x87 cm) 2002 - 2004
    The use of stained glass to enliven a room with colour gave me a wonderful environment for a little fun with the musical muses.
  • The Shower (101 x 55 x 77 cm)
    1982
    A very positive and gentle aspect of one of the female archetypes. She has emerged from water - water is frequently a symbol representing the Unconscious - . and is standing in a mandala pattern – symbol of integration and wholeness.
  • The Pool(29 x 52 x 24 cm) 1993
    The Anima is emerging from water - the Unconscious – in this palatial environment.
  • The Lift (109 x 61 x 71cm)
    1983
    This portrays another aspect of the Archetype of the Anima. This time she is seen as Guide as she might appear in a dream.
  • Circle Dance (86 x 84 x 55 cm)
    1991
    The nubile young women mirror recognisable elements in many a man’s fantasies, while the Great Mother represents the nurturer of Life and the deliverer of Death!
  • Processions (48 x 64 x 33 cm)
    1993
    A rather satirical look at the arcane rituals practised in many religions.
  • Odalisque (73 x 81 x 73 cm)
    1998-2000
    From the 18th century onwards Western artists have been fascinated with the harem and its mysteries. This is a piece celebrating aspects of its sumptuousness and sensuality.
  • The Dressing Table (244 x 141 x 80 cm)
    1977- 97
    Another affectionate revisit to 19th century themes. A pretty girl absorbed in her own reflection could well be part of much Victorian domestic genre painting.
  • Lamia (40 x 48 x 41 cm)
    1993
    The Lamia was a highly dangerous monster, presenting itself as an attractive and desirable girl. In some traditions she is known as Melisande.
  • Lilith (40 x 48 41 cm)
    1993
    In the Talmudic tradition Lilith was the first wife of Adam, but considered herself his equal and refused to serve him. For her ‘feminist’ stance she was replaced by Eve and relegated to the role of nocturnal demon.
  • The Spinner (40 x 50 x 31 cm)
    1993
    This refers to myths and fairy tales (Sleeping Beauty and others) in which the Old Woman spins fate, destiny or the thread of life.
  • The House of Wonders (30 x 66 x 33 cm)
    1983
    The little hermaphrodite represents the Psyche or the Self (masculine and feminine elements fused together) and stresses the essential loneliness of the human soul.
  • Hermaphrodite Being (96 x 61 x 61 cms)
    1985 – 1992
    In the Collection of the Erotic Museum, Copenhagen
    In Jungian psychology the Psyche is seen as androgynous, The hermaphrodite figure, incorporating a balance of male and female seems to be the perfect way to express this desirable harmony in the human soul.
  • Hermaphrodite Reflecting (105 x 49 x 59)
    1990 - 1997
    In the Collection of the Erotic Museum, Copenhagen
    In dreams the archetype of the Self – often represented as an hermaphrodite - will appear as a character of great importance and dignity – a super-ordinary person
  • Hermaphrodite Transforming (77 x 61 x 66 cm)
    2001 - 2004
    This hermaphrodite is absorbed in his/her own image and is equipped with the tools for self transformation.
  • Hermaphrodite Enthroned
    (109 x 86 x 110 cm)
    2003 - 2004
    My most recent work on the theme of the Hermaphrodite, and, perhaps my ultimate statement on this topic. In this piece I am trying to suggest the importance of the integrated personality with a regal figure within a palatial setting.
  • The Veil  (91 x 56 66 cm)
    2003
    A slightly provocative piece with the almost discreetly veiled figure surrounded by mirrors, providing a gentle challenge to the voyeur within us all.
     
  • The Boat  (66 x 145 x 53 cm)
    Another presentation of the archetype of the Anima - this time as the Wise Woman, here personified as a matriarchal figure.
    She is navigating her Boat of Light through the caverns of ancient memory on the dark waters of the Unconscious
