About The Artwork

"Like Candy"is an acrylic painting on canvas on 10oz cotton, stretched on a chunky stretcher that has a strong crossbar support on the back. This means it can be hung on the wall, as it is, or alternatively can be framed, depending on taste and budget. I have been drawn to using yellow as a main colour in my paintings, for the last few years. It seems to contain an almost luminous energy, that people respond to warmly. I love how in this painting, the brightness of the yellow, is balanced beautifully with the soft dove greys beneath it. It is both bold and bright, yet also contemplative, soft and gentle. I have been developing the use of drawing in my recent work, and this piece uses a range of marks, and gestures, using both paint and pencil. I feel this gives the painting an energy, as well as a sensitivity.

"I believe that visual language has a potent power, like music or literature. And it has the power to lift, communicate and transform. Using pattern and mark to create rhythm, I use a range of materials; paint, pencil, fabric, collage, metallics, and build up my paintings in a very organic way. I overlay layers of paint, mark and collage to build up the pictorial space. This creates glimpses, hidden spaces, things half_ shown, suggested. I use delicate layers of texture, drawing and colour to create an ambiguous space. The image is then worked and re_worked until the image is “found”. Only when a balance and integration is achieved I feel that the painting is finished. I like to think of them as “visual poems”. This sensual world is one to be absorbed, felt, and enjoyed. "
