Artist Statement

Contemporary abstract painting consisting of a raw canvas background layered with various gestural brush marks and hard edged graphic motifs. Painted using Golden acrylic paint, Old Holland oil paint, spray paint, oil pastels and oil bars.

My current work demonstrates my ongoing exploration of the medium of paint. Varying styles of paint application jostle for position on the finished canvas, desperate for a place in the ‘final cut’. Areas of paint, objects and various marks are laid down as I work then perhaps painted out as the work evolves and the composition develops. Happy accidents are as an integral part of the work as the clean and crisp or the neatly painted, one offsetting the other.

The resultant paintings are not planned through to completion before they are started but instead develop and evolve with a stream of consciousness. The process of painting being equal too if not more significant than the end result.

In my recent body of work the occurrence of hard-edged or graphic elements have returned whilst the backgrounds are built up with acrylic on raw canvas.
