About the Artist:
I live and work in London. The city is a vast, vital and diverse place. Simply being here is a source of inspiration. My painting starts with abstract memory, dreaming, seeing, absorbing, an emotional response to nature. I use a restricted palette which hopefully resonates with my visceral self. Any invention comes from within and if Iím lucky some kind of alchemy happens. Special influences are the American Expressionists & Russian Supremists, Agnes Martin, Albers, Hilma af Klint, the Bauhaus & fifties graphic design. Chinese and Japanese art is my current interest.
Composition is important and there is a breaking down of form. Prime concerns are light, positioning of shape & colour, to make something new to look at, albeit hybrid creations. I work with uncertainty, not knowing, a lack, a frustration, a tolerance of incompleteness. There is no justification. There is no message, opinion, assertion or information- maybe just the occasional meaning. The aim is to achieve a simplicity, a perfect space, a clarity out of a complex process. Images may be recycled using an age-old traditional medium allowing painting & outside influences to respond to the techno-cultural context of the twenty-first century.
