Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Pencil, Pastel, Spray Paint, Ink on Canvas.

This was the first painting I completed after moving back to Europe after living in Japan for almost a decade ('For Kakuzo 1862' was started in Tokyo before I moved to Germany)

It is named after Okakura Kakuzō (also known as 岡倉 天心 Okakura Tenshin

I am interested in the relationship between symbols and the possibility of meaning that they contain.

The process for me is very important. I add and remove textures and marks until a form appears which I then develop (a piece of work can take months of re-working)

This work was produced on canvas. I used a variety of materials including, high quality acrylics / pastels / (colour) pencils / ink / ink stamp(s) / gesso /spray paint

It is protected with a universal varnish (matt)

I graduated from Gray's School of Art (The Robert Gordon University) in Aberdeen and have exhibited throughout Scotland, in Maastricht (The Netherlands) and in Tokyo (where I lived for almost a decade) including at The National Art Centre Tokyo in 2015 (太平洋展、国立新美術館)
