'Urban Edge' paintings

Since 2003 I have been working on a series of paintings that have focused on the plight and situations of the homeless and street people. This subject matter has moved me the more I have observed it, and my aim is to move the feelings of the people who look at my paintings.

Homeless Glance (acrylic on wood).     
  People going about their everyday lives try not to see the situation of the homeless, as it can make them feel uncomfortable and perhaps remind them of how vunerable anyone can be to life`s unexpected events. The viewer can look at my paintings without having to stare at an individual in the street, and in doing so, reflect on aspects of urban life that they have never had to deal with. The pictures are painted using acrylic paint on either opened out cardboard boxes or wood panel
