I believe that all of our experiences, perceptions and emotions can and will emerge, given the chance, in and through the art individuals create.
My artistic journey is focused on exploring communication of life’s conscious and sub conscious experiences and perceptions through abstract representational work. I have been fortunate to have enjoyed a varied, interesting and challenging life (so far) and through art I continually find or uncover meaning, emotions and feelings within my completed work. At times my own understanding of the symbolism or emotions related to the work are not evident for months or even years after works are complete.
I am inspired by many artists and styles and this broad interest if very evident though the diverse works ranging from portraits to pure abstracts that I like to paint.
In my abstract paintings, I utilize elements of process painting and ‘loose’ painterly representation. Recently I have completed a small series that explored the elements of contemporary expression. The acrylic works isolate and boldly present snapshots of select ‘tools’ used for individual expression and use colour and space to provide ambiance.
I like art... there it is, one of my biggest issues! The problem is it is incredibly challenging to produce what I believe is wonderful art. I wish it was't but perhaps that is why I love it and continually strive to do my best whenever I am creating.
