VIEW IN MY ROOM
Microcosm is one of the earliest works in this Lamella series of Abstract Expressionist works. I start with no preconceived notion of what the finished work will look like, embracing chance and improvisation. Decisions about what to apply next onto a given work, are made in a spontaneous, intuitive way, and every mark or gesture is a response to what has already been applied. These works are built up in layers, juxtaposing often quite bold, intense and contrasting colours and a diversity of textures from delicate and translucent glazes, to thickly rendered impasto gestures. I arrive at a title, as the work starts to take shape, and the forms suggest something to me. The way the forms seem to float and interact in three-dimensional space in this painting, reminded me of images of microscopic single-celled creatures in their own tiny world. These intensely coloured expressionist abstractions, are a personal response to the strange new, post-truth, pandemic-stricken world we now live in. They represent a kind of conceptual freedom or escape. Microcosm is an oil painting on a wooden panel, with raw pine edges and a picture cord on the reverse, ready to hang. It will hang flat against the wall on one screw or picture hook.
