Artist Statement

My work is abstract and non-compositional and concerns the basic elements of painting, matter, colour, light and space.  It combines the principles of reduction and simplification with colour defining the space and the relationship.

I am concerned with the materiality of paint, mixing, layering and scraping back, confining, repeating and exploring the manifold interactions of colour, line and form.   The sense of space and the free movement of paint on the surface are important to me and the tension between these two elements give the paintings a firm framework.
