Painting: Oil on Canvas.
My work is about patterns in the world around us, finding abstractions in the complex and complexity in the apparently simple, and about repetition/universality and singularity/now.
This series of works developed from a series of experiments with form and geometry - the cumulative effect of many small changes in colour and orientation, the convergence of almost parallel lines, the perception of space around a dense form, the interaction of curves and lines.
Experimenting with new techniques, an artist inevitably creates unexpected connections, allusions and implications - some surprising, some so apparently logical as to be almost self-evident. In these works people have found many things which were previously invisible to me. For example palm trees - the most evocative of plants, with its simple form once multiplied creating incredibly complex patterns, and its multiplicity of allusions from the jungle to the beach to the damp, rusting palm houses of the botanic gardens of Europe - or Malevich's figures of peasants and peasant women. Maybe they were there, maybe they are there now, maybe they are not there.
