    CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY FOR ALL PAINTINGS

     I am an abstract painter. I paint intuitively without any plan for what the finished piece will be, allowing instinct to guide the creative process.  Acting and reacting to the stroke of colour, This encourages my  mood, interest and love of colour to be reflected in my work.

    What is it about my art/abstraction that I am feeling and trying  to consciously and subconsciously convey?

    It is that tightrope that I am trying to walk psychologically from being of mixed race background. The Indian and the African- the two cultures which are very rich and dotted with the history of colonisation in both continents. The conflicts and peace are often played out in my paintings. At times the celebration breaks through and yet the conflicts can be quite visceral in my paintings.

    I am then transported to a Western / European idiom through my 40 years of living in England. I have absorbed rich ideas, customs and values from these three peoples, societies and cultures, which have influenced me both personally and in the expression of my art
