Biography

About

April

I feel as if we have landed on a different planet the world we knew

No longer exists. Things have fallen apart. I seem to have no fixed rationale or painting purpose at this time, random ideas and thoughts find their way into the work. The paintings were affected by the rare visits from my family and friends, beach walks, news on TV. I often  begin something and it transforms in a day often hovering between representation and abstraction, striving for a sense of something tangible within the intangible.

September

I am currently concerned with the physicality of painting; colour, form, space, texture and the alchemy that can arise from a response to materials.

Limited studio time, interruptions and anxieties disrupt the thought and practical process of painting. I have nevertheless managed to complete a series of paintings “In Lockdown”
