'Clearly from the first view you'll gather this artwork is firmly within my silhouette series. I've added depth through a clear medium which I've also tentatively engraved on both sides. The widely accepted concept of vinyl records pressed with two sides to choose from has seeped into my process before now. However, as music increases it's studio presence over my process it's perhaps unsurprising that it's physical format would also influence me. The title is also a single release from Depeche Mode's Violator album from 1990. It's not my intention to interpret all of the nine tracks in physical form but admittedly I have mined that body of work extensively already. I'm sharing an apparition of a male figure adorned in the finest silver and gold in a worshipful pose. As the sky darkens, we rely on more distant light sources that need to work harder to lure out the subtle shifts in form. It's only when the visible details of the day are lost that we turn to our tactile senses for a more pressing appreciation'.
