Below is a selection that may be at the Fair, unless SOLD prior.
What excites me and generates the painting is an awareness of movement or still ness and the patterns in nature; paint and colour. And I am responsive to my environment at any time, so my work changes accordingly – and that could be a response to the qualities of where I am, the light, what it means to me, what I’m thinking about it etc.
My images try to pin down the experience, describe phenomena on the periphery glimpsed through movement in space, the elemental and otherness of nature and experience rather than the natural image. Hence, the recording in “abstract” terms of the experience.
I’m also interested in the fact of being an artist – so it’s more about me than the natural input, more about the act of creativity. Paint comes into this – the mark making to imitate but not describe natural elements; the expressive brushstrokes and forms in the compositions to indicate movement; making forms to hold “marks-as-nature” in new compositions and to indicate a space, which still speaks of nature.
My recent work has developed this 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.
