A collection of paintings and recollections exploring the “American Dream” through a series of gritty, sparse yet beautiful images, that together create a “pop art cocktail” of the past three decades of American counter culture, as seen through the eyes of a young man growing up in the North of England, paired with the witty titles and biting satire of northern “football terrace” humour…”Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough.”

A series of paintings exploring the dark side of the “American Dream” shining a light on the inevitable fall out and resulting chaos that comes from three decades of cultural excess the result being a brutal and brooding catalogue of character’s and events that both glamorise and chastise in equal measure…”shelve your western plans”.
