ARTISTIC STATEMENT !!!Post-Minimalist plus!!! I'm an emerging painter currently working in the abstract genre. My aim is to bring the clarity and logic found in classical and contemporary musical compositions to painting. **Since 2018 I have been working in paintings that go beyond the strict absolute maxims of minimalism. I call this style post-minimalism. They follow many of the objectives of Donald Judd’s minimalism: they minimise the illusion of depth and other forms of illusionism (e.g. texture, brushwork). The key difference between my post-minimalists and minimalist works is that the former refer to objects in the real world (e.g. D-Day beaches) or the world of literature (the Ancient Greek poems: The Iliad and The Odyssey; the Ancient Roman poem: The Aeneid) or the world of music/opera (For Dmitri Shostakovich; Sadko) or the world of history (Ovid in exile; Shakespeare’s history plays). **In 2018, I painted a five-panel polyptych in oils based on The Iliad, The Aeneid and The Odyssey. These are post-minimalist and extremely reductionist. **From 2015 to 2017 I produced abstract paintings, two works based on poems by Lorca and an installation (Coit Tower, San Francisco) based on white/white ceramic cylinders. **From 2014 to 2016, I worked on a series ‘Views from Venetian Fortress Rethymno, Crete’ which explore different levels of figuration/abstraction. **From 2006 to 2014, I worked on a major series of still lifes called "˜The Art of Still Life: Theme and Variations'. There are 45 variations plus 3 intermezzos in the series. The theme is a charcoal drawing and the variations are in oils. The project's objective was to extend the possibilities of the still-life genre by introducing cryptic, autobiographical, musical, literary and mythical/religious (Greek/Hindu) elements into the paintings. The resulting paintings are original, daring, visionary and sometimes futuristic. The body of work can be seen as part memoirs/confessional, part closely-observed still-lifes. I've sold my work in the UK and abroad.
