ABSTRACTS: Around 2005 my pursuit of the defining realism led me to realize that on an essential and profound level, the nature of each thing affects and influences the nature of another. I began to explore the most fundamental relationship of painting, namely how the space is affected by an 'element.'
I chose as subject rectilinear shapes and restricted their alignment to be parallel to the canvas edges. I retain the working habits of watercolour painting in that neither shape nor colour can be changed once painted. This forces each decision to be deliberate and each subsequent shape acutely attuned to the one before. Paradoxically, this intellectual process requires a heightened intuitive awareness of the unfolding relationships.
Over the course of twelve years the abstract works has encompassed a myriad of themes expressed in a personal and cohesive visual language.
