Artist's description:

I listen to music as I paint; I love the musical space as it breathes and floats. At times the equivalent can be rather like painting on the sky or on water. Sailing above the musical thing is the release of colour – which is a passion. The primacy of colour is everything to me in painting, and that is what I respond to in recent art history, the works of Van Gogh, Gauguin, Bonnard, Matisse, Miro and the Americans. I remember looking at Rothko when I was a student. I’d never seen anything so wonderful. As someone said, the paintings appear to be lit from within.
Large scale canvases have always been a format which excites me and allows me the space to explore the medium of paint in this way, but more recently I have found ways to achieve the same energy and depth in smaller scale works.
