title; IT SIMPLY IS THE COAST
Oil painting built up in layers and glazes, on chunky stretched cotton canvas measuring 60 cm x 60 cm x 4 cm. painting has been continued around the sides, so all ready to hang. Create a striking focal point in any room. This is an original, one off piece of art, I don't produce prints of my work, so you will own the only one.
.ABOUT MY WORK
I'll begin a painting, with perhaps a colour in mind, or the mere stimulation of a blank surface. The painting takes over and directs the outcome. I love the unpredictability of this method, it's a subliminal message taking control of my trained hand.
It's a search more than a journey, the journey began, it won't end. Sometimes when you're searching, you find something you didn't know you were looking for.
I used to think each painting was a development from the one before and this made it better. Of course this isn't true. Each painting exists in its own individual space, it's a testament to the inner artist and moments in time. Often informing the next piece in either a small or large way.
THE UNEXPECTED - I'm an unpredictable painter, I work in a mess, I like to be out of control.
COLOUR - Fascinated by the theory of colour, the affect this can have on mood and the way the eye adjusts it.
FRAGMENTS – dilution of reality, minimalism.
PAINT – seductive and almost edible.
