The series 'Grand and fatal movements' considers the violence humankind inflicts upon the earth - and consequentially, upon itself. Mirroring this, splintered and distorted nude figures are found enveloped in an inky blackness, often unnervingly transformed. Severed limbs are presented for inspection, arms and fingers left flailing and grasping. Reminiscent of classical religious paintings such as Rubens' 'Fall of the Damned', 'Grand and Fatal Movements' forebodingly provides a warning for more modern - concerns - that the only hand we now ought to fear is not that of God, but of man.
