Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Within my work I continue to explore the idea of moments. This work engages with material gathered from my time spent in various places in the world. Namely, India, Spain and California, part of the process is to absorb things which excite me and digest them in a painterly way.

Questions such as how this imagery translates into a ‘pan global’ vocabulary becomes interesting. Creating a dialogue of mixing different influences and the back and forth nature of the discussion happen on the surface of the canvas; they are 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, a moment glimpsed whilst laying poolside, or even a collection of observed objects, tyres stacked on the road or a table laden with drinks and paraphernalia. Many of these important elements are enhanced by a desire to explore the way light in these places enhances the compositions i allow myself to glimpse, bright harsh light that makes colours pop and resonate, a shimmering haze feeling. i want my paintings to have the same resonation. This kind Abstraction allows me the pleasure of observing the world and translating it into a visual dialogue
