Maurice is a many faceted artist. He has been a working drummer from the age of 14, a drummer/percussionist and singer-songwriter with Spikedrivers since 1999, an aviation photographer and most recently has found a new medium in glass. He has always considered art to be a form of communication. As a musician he seeks to evoke emotion in the listener and with photography, to capture a moment in time.

But working in glass is very different. You cannot do a photo representation of a specific aeroplane without using paint or stain to reproduce the correct detailing. Maurice works mainly in copper-foiled glass and sees it as an extraction of a series of shapes in an attempt to fool the eye into seeing not a specific plane but the more simplified and elemental spirit of the plane. As this is only the beginning of his journey, we certainly look forward to seeing future works...
