Paul Heywood

In my paintings the aim is to create images that work purely as areas of two-dimensional colour. The scale of marks relates directly to the size and format of the canvas. My concern is not with tonal variations that might distract and create ambiguities of depth. In leaving a white surround and sometimes separating shapes and colours 1 am emphasising to maximum effect the simplicity and vibrancy of the image. In the large acrylics on canvas the paint is generally used to a very thin consistency to create 'veils' or glazes of colour. In contrast the oil pastels are heavily built up to achieve richness and depth.
