About The Artwork

A celebration of a new season in fresh new hues of green in a waterside scene of budding trees. I have great respect for watercolourists and wanted to try my hand at water mediums. In contrast to how I use my oil paints as texture and line, I now concentrated more on the fluidity of the medium and its relationship and interaction with the canvas in an application. In this medium, I am lead by the natural formation of shapes that I plan but which, with the help of water on the support, largely informs the composition. I find this a beautifully organic and spontaneous medium. My choice for acrylic ink instead of watercolour was because I prefer the original lines to stay intact after first application because I do not want to shift and manipulate the medium to suit my view but rather be informed by it.

About my work currently… Most of the works I create are from memory and intuition. I was trained as a decor artist and painted murals and tromp l’oeil since 1989 but I eventually felt that to paint a client’s vision did not satisfy me or give an outing to my creative impulses. Through my development, I have found that natural landscapes are the best themes for me to translate my inner thoughts which I am unable to translate eloquently in words. I can be as abstract in the execution as I like and only use colour and tone and line to speak without being hampered by the burden of trying to accurately capture a ‘scene’. My landscapes generally will have no man-made objects or people in because I am creating spaces for the viewer to step into and complete with their own memories and experience and not dictate beyond a basic tone. Having said that, I recently painted a few seascapes with people walking and the overall effect, I felt, did not detract from the soulful space I wanted to create for the viewer. So, this new experimentation is still evolving… I feel these spaces are strong and complete in its elements to satisfy the senses. Water and sky also fascinate me as it is ever-changing. The use of brushes softens lines and palette knife add movement and ascents are done intuitively. To overthink a mark and plotting lines ruin the spontaneity and freshness of the work for me. I feel if I make a mark loose but sure, and leave it, it will still have a sense of moving ever-changing as water and sky would. The work will not trap anyone in any one moment but always give the sense of being in motion. My preferred medium is oil paint as I love the texture and luxury of a slower drying medium that affords me the time to explore glazing and impasto techniques with my trusted palette knife and brush and lately also sgraffito. On closer reflection, I would have to say that my work is a subtle and maybe sometimes expressive mix of tonalism and luminism. Colour fascinates and sometimes frustrate me and exploring the different pigments and manufacturing results is an added passion for the hours spent in my home studio. “in times when one can produce no great effect in the outer world, one should seek to shape the expression of one’s being in small ways” I ‘Ching 9, the image
