Artist Statement

My art practice has its currency deep in the post-modern age, yet flirting in the modernist manner with colour field, and somewhat entrenched in the abstract expressionist approach to deliver what I am about. I paint to elicit and evoke a reaction from the viewer, whatever, some distant memories, and some lost feelings that may be deeply entrenched, but have perhaps been kept subordinate by the passage of time. However, by contemplating and letting go, one begins to comprehend the work and become one with the work. In my painting, I work with abstraction; pulling and pushing the paint to achieve desired results. I paint in a gestural manner; always arranging and scratching if required on different planes that overlap one another and blend into real shapes to create a world of mystery and sensuality from past memories and journeys. This visceral emotional reaction to something in my work comes from somewhere deep within, and it can empathize to the inner recess of each person... My work is intuitive; colour and gestural strokes are the language that I use to express those responses. It is the interaction of colour and gesture that drive me. It is the colour and shape that interests me and how the colour interacts. When I paint I try to share my experiences through the colours I employ and let the vibration of the various colours bring about memories and deeply entrenched thoughts. Naturally there are many things and ideas taking place in my head...
