Painting: Gouache on Paper.
Within my work I continue to explore the idea of moments. This work engages with material gathered from my time in India. Having lived there for three years and now back to the UK, I find myself considering the visual stimulus discovered there.
Questions such as how this imagery translates into a ‘pan global’ vocabulary becomes interesting. Creating a dialogue of mixing a western/eastern influence and the back and forth nature of the discussion happen on the surface of the canvas; moments, that may or may not have existed.
Within my own abstracted painting style there are shapes and forms that lead to suggestions of 'things'. The ideas of semi-recognisable forms can suggest a narrative. Forms appear through drawings, thoughts, ideas and experiences. The paintings may suggest spaces I know, fabrics, places, an interesting space between buildings seen whilst walking in the street or even a collection of observed objects, tyres stacked on the road or a plate of jellabies. Abstraction allows me the pleasure of observing the world and translating it into a visual dialogue.
