I don't want to blow the viewer away with a grand canvas; instead, draw them in to examine the detail and the story—which is manufactured. I aim for realism, but the picture is composed from various photos, put together like a Photoshop. There's a bit of John Brack and Jeffrey Smart, but not intended. If not specifically about disconnectedness, the work will have a social comment or an irony, sometimes with obscure meanings.
