Piece description from the artist
I've currently been working within the theme of repetition, which allows me to take on many different genres of picture making. I find myself being drawn to man made vessels as the focus of these objects. The cheese wheels were something I came upon on my annual visit to Great Britain, in a place called Borough Market . I loved the scale and weight of the wheels, and I've always had an appreciation for craftsmen that have plied a trade for centuries. This picture makes me want to drink wine for some reason…………
