Artist Statement

The Capture of Movement
There is a connection between the physical and the mental and our bodies often express feelings which remain unspoken. In the same way that bodies have a language, so do paintings. I have developed a language of movement, action and emotion. Abstract Expressionist and Action painting techniques, are strong influences in my work. My paintings are built up from layers of observed movement they come from life, my imagination and my memories. Simple, primitive colours are spontaneously improvised and dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied. I see the canvas as a space for my gestures to communicate emotion, authentic and free, and for the viewer to participate in the formation of meaning.
Losing control and brush handling are my techniques in order to make a faithful record of movement and action on the canvas. In my work, I use multiple brush strokes: applying paint in observed moments and a series of rapid gestures over large areas making thick, swooping lines with unmistakable brush marks. I need to have freedom for brush-handling and space to express feelings so the size of my work has always been substantial scale. In the process of painting, I dribble and splash paint for a spontaneous effect. To create big marks, I also make large gestures across the canvas with different palettes knife. I have sometimes destroyed my paintings to invite new ideas and ways of thinking to come to me. My interest is more than aesthetics; my paintings attempt to express emotions that I hope can be felt by the viewer....
