Eschewing the limited and oppositional categories of ‘bad painting’ or ‘outsider art’, Tales of the Unexpected nevertheless reflects an attitude to painting that deliberately sidesteps the standards of good taste to challenge the conventionally acceptable by engaging playful means, instinctive logic and/or unselfconscious excess.

Irreverent content, a disregard for accurate representation and rejection of conventional subjects result in intensely personal and liberated paintings that are potent with suggestion and unpredictable appeal.

Each bold piece hints at a back-story, often with sinister or wryly comedic undertones, that combine or antagonise to produce multiple twisted Tales of the Unexpected.
