The images I create have, over time, become abstract in nature, and yet are defined by an observation of natural and organic forms in the landscape. Abstraction is experiencing the ‘absence of subject' or the 'freedom from subject'. This eliminates the ‘security' of a recognisable form, thus causing the viewer to involve their own imagination in resolving the image, declining the 'challenge' or, indeed creating their own interpretation.

My works are intended to involve the viewer and I have tried to introduce an element of journey within them, with points of entry and departure. I try to reveal aesthetic appeal in unlikely places and ask the viewer to consider things otherwise ignored.  

I tend to work in 'threads', picking up on a whim, as with the (penwith) songlines series. This work has taken its inspiration from mosaics and the landscape, in this instance Penwith in Cornwall. With these works I have tried to create jewel like, colour saturated images filled with movement in order to entice the viewer in. Whilst a little less abstract, the invitation to accept or decline the challenge is still there. 

These images were painted during the first lockdown of the Covid epidemic and were an attempt to raise my spirits in isolation.

My work changes when  I feel either an end to a creative path signalling a desire to move on, either forward or even back. I work as I feel at any time refusing to be constrained by the concept of work 'evolving'.
