The various themes for the work come from a desire to capture moments (often infamous) in history, however world-defining or insignificant.

About

I began & continue to be an ABSTRACT painter, applying & removing marks rapidly & instinctively until there is nothing left to change.

Recently I've branched into other areas of enquiry which include the LANDSCAPES currently on show. They come out of a desire for a more specific narrative, rather than some universal statement. The narrative is always balanced against the aesthetic, I dont wish to illustrate.

The third approach, the PHOTO PANELS, are a more literal combination of image & (found) surface. Accidental marks on the panels become treasured through the process of finalizing the piece.

The various themes for the work come from a desire to capture moments (often infamous) in history, however world-defining or insignificant. Place, era & personal recollection are significant & how my place in time relates to that. I'm drawn to the era I first became aware of the world outside of me.

All three processes involve a varying approach to making but the intensity & immersion within that making remains constant.
