What excites me and generates the painting is an awareness of movement and the patterns in nature, the belief in an interconnectedness of things as well as pure enjoyment of the formal elements of painting- line, space, form and colour.
My images map movement and the energy between things in an environment and try to pin down the feeling, the elemental and otherness in nature rather than a natural image. Hence, the recording, in “abstract” terms, of the experience.
My work has developed into an exploration where spontaneity, chance and play are next to considered time-based events- where you get chaos and movement juxtaposed alongside more sober considered mark making.
The latest paintings are exploring a synthesis of classical drapery from Renaissance and Mannerist eras or still life in master’s paintings; and contemporary abstraction.
