Sorry, this artist has no work listed just yet.
I am an Abstract Expressionist Colourist. In my paintings I deliberately celebrate the lyricism of colour and mark making, calling attention to the visual poetry of a work. My artworks can be non-objective or suggestive impressions of landscapes, domestic scenes and realms within the imagination and beyond.
In my provisional process, I embrace the accidental, experimental and the intuitive. Spontaneity and the energy of the painting process is ever-present as are traces of re-workings. My work fundamentally examines the interrelationship between Abstract Art and The Spiritual and the effect of Late Modernity on society.
