landscapes, and with specific reference to man-made marks on the
landscape, forms the main theme throughout his work. Physical
boundaries (such as rusted barbed wire fences) occurs regularly in
his paintings and relates to both boundaries found in landscapes, as
well as mental boundaries that the artist might be confronted with.
