Fractals, Chaos theory, Galaxies and cells. Elements combining in brief encounters withunforeseen consequences.
The immediacy of oil painting is my laboratory; an opportunity to push shapes and marks from side to side and use colour to move them backwards and forward.
As well as painting with brushes I also often make use of sponges, rags and tissues to apply increasingly thicker layers of oil paint which can rubbed away or ground into the surface of the painting. The history or archaeology of the marks and layers of the painting are important to me.
