The shells sequence began as a site specific group of paintings commissioned by Mogens Tholstrup for his London restaurant The Collection, where a group of five was installed within the Norman Foster interior.

My brief was to expand on the Maya-style shell logo.

Three of these pictures, along with other pieces from my portfolio were later acquired by Roman Abramovich.

The unique whorls of shells are directed clockwise in perfect synchronization with universal harmony and are said to contain the primordial sound of creation.
