This current body of work represents a natural progression of my image making. Over time, there has been a gradual shift from surface flatness toward textural complexity and a broader use of materials and substrates. Works on paper have been joined by oil, acrylic and mixed-media pieces on canvas, paper and wood panels.
In all instances the content has remained constant. Almost always there is a main figural element handled in a spontaneous abstract way with a reliance on ‘stream of consciousness’ drawing. Slowly a narrative context emerges, albeit one that is not always apparent. Someone once likened it to viewing a loved one through a fractured window; a vaguely familiar ghost.
Hopefully, this ‘not knowing’ draws in the viewer and allows a personal connection with the art.
