Im extremely consumed in every line, texture and nuance sweeping across the canvas, applying my whole physical being into the act of creation that is part of the challenge to bring the shape of the painting to life. I have a close connection with the materials as i work outside where sun, wind and influences of nature all play a part, its clearly hard to contain the pleasures of the paint.
I recycle everything from paints to my own paintings to enhance the maximum sculptural energy, whilst remaining confined within the paintings boundaries of a mostly two dimensional realm. The result is a distinctive style of painting that hovers between the abstract plane and the visual tension of the natural world. The material, physical and tactile nature of the canvas is clearly a spontaneous enjoyment in the act of painting, the dynamic paint application is as if in a whirlwind of pure life-force and vitality.
