The above pieces in the RBC London collection are part of an ongoing series of works on paper produced by hand. Some of them are literally "finger paintings" and the artist's fingerprints can be seen. In a culture dominated by ideas, narratives, and information, these works are studies in light, colour, human perception, and the imagination.The title Entanglements refers to a property physicists call 'entanglement', which says that, bizarrely, particles that are even light years apart move together and influence each other. Entanglement is a very unintuitive, seemingly irrational property of our universe and points to the fundamental strangeness of the world. It's wonderful. The Entanglements series may also include juvenile images of sailboats, sunsets, notes on the mundane and the absurd, and thoughts of characters in the world, such Sandy Toksvig or Archie Shepp.
