To say Aloha is to give love, make peace, show affection, feel compassion and demonstrate mercy.  In Hawaiian culture this is used as a simple greeting. It’s older meaning is to define a force that holds a mother to a child and a heart to a hand.

The drawing and paintings in this show continue to reflect my diverse response as an artist to a range of tools and media. My passion for figure and animal themes continues to inspire the subject matter.

 

The drawings and water-colours are inspired by vintage images of people in costume. I am interested in ideas around the meaning of performance: whether it is to dress up and play a character for a party or a show, or to perform/present a version of yourself in response to an audience, be it your colleagues, your students, your friends etc.

When I draw, I love the experience of lead pencil on paper to create contour lines, and fine textures.

When I paint in water-colour, I enjoy creating watery brush-strokes, to reflect the

light-hearted subject matter.

I continue to enjoy sculpting: Either creating works in wax and having them cast in bronze, or hand building in porcelain, glazing or painting.
