Venture into a dreamworld where bodies float and flutter….

Painting with passion and purity, Astley explores the cyclic facility of the human condition and the ceremonial rites of births, marriages and deaths. 

Dwelling somewhere between reality, illusion and suggestion, Astley’s imagery explores life’s unforeseen capacity for unbridled joy but also fathomless misery.
