My painting is derived from visual landscape, but whilst I attempt to communicate visual experience it is not so much a specific image, more a visceral, holistic experience. What I search for is to discover a hidden meaning in the process through the juxtaposition of semi-abstract marks and shapes. These combine together to hint at a further meaning, but nothing that can be pinned down and dependant on the viewer’s own interpretation. If my work communicates an ephemeral, allusive feeling or memory, then it has achieved something. My work is not however, bounded by any one way of working or subject. for example, I have recently worked with taster pots of household emulsion after finding some used pots being recycled. This medium provided me with a new way of working with the flat surface, without texture, but no doubt will also evolve sooner or later.
