I work with acrylics on canvas and though I am not exactly wedded to this medium it serves my purpose. My recent paintings reflect landscapes and figures in landscape. I use ideas from drawings I’ve done in the past, over a lifetime in fact, a sort of amalgam of different places and my own personal narratives. With this freedom I allow myself, the images inevitably express something of my broader preoccupations, that is somewhat apocalyptic at the moment. But I try not to be limited by my starting point as it is the practice and my sometimes less than conscious process that determines how each painting develops. The philosophy behind my paintings probably relates most to abstract expressionism and the spontaneous, unself-conscious art of young children.
