Everything that can be seen can be broken down into shapes and colours. My paintings and drawings break down the visual and simplify it into shapes then fragmenting and merging them to produce an abstract image. Everything used can be broken down to the materials used to make it. I have collected discarded items found on the side of the road and used them as a painting surface bringing attention the part each item may have played in its role during its life. The technique I used to create these works is similar to the ‘Automatic Drawings’ which was developed by the Surrealists to produce drawings from the unconscious. Only when filling in the drawing with paint do I give consideration to what the final piece will look like which gives a balance of absolute abstract with no control and a considered deliberate piece of artwork. I consider the surface I use as important to the piece as the paint. By using found objects as my surface I’m again giving up a certain amount of control in my creation and letting the history of the object I have found have it’s say in the work making each piece unique.
Painting:Oil on Wood
Size:32 W x 32 H x 1 D in
After a long an uneventful career in administration I decided to give it all up and go to art school. I mostly paint on found objects, picking up things I find on the side of the road that other people don't want. This gives my work a unique and unpredictable element to it. The painting I produce relies on the surface I have so I react to each object I find differently. I work part time to pay my rent so I don't have to rely on my painting for financial support which gives me the freedom to take my art in any direction I feel necessary for my own development.
