Hi, my paintings are a mix of analytical drawing, intuition, striking palettes and gestural marks. I instinctively choose colour, brush, tool, and respond to what is on the canvas, choosing the direction, size, speed, and physical movement needed to continue the conversation.
As the alchemy of paint, colour, movement, subconscious and conscious thought begin to work their magic, a work takes shape. Once a strong idea takes hold then the painting becomes more conscious and colour, mark, gesture are altered to fit.
The challenge is to keep the work from becoming too tight, too overworked whilst keeping the loose gestural instinctive brush strokes.
Sometimes I go too far, don't we all! However there is pleasure to be taken from successfully rescuing something unimaginable that surprises even myself.
