There is always a conversation with the medium, that is very powerful. It is reflective of the condition within a subject that I arrive at. Within my practice I have become engaged with the paint as the main focal point, it is the most dominating feature within the work. It moves the painting from one stage to the next and grows it within the search for the sublime.
The paintings are translations from the body and the language within the mind towards a decision, and back to the body and mind. There is this disarray that surrounds all of which has been created within this group, that leaves it hard to put into one single place. Having to be fully aware of what is happening has not interested me, I like to feel like it has been part of an ever-changing journey with the paintings, where the paintings unfold naturally and suggest their own subjects. This is defiantly something Ifelt sanguine about from the start. I did not want to stamp them as paintings of a specific thing. They are motifs and symbols that have found patterns on there own, each picture lends itself to the next with a similar but slightly contort energy that forms its own phycological difference to the last.
Always between figure, landscape and abstraction. I am attracted to the figure and the male and female form and there ongoing relationship with paint as a medium. The landscape combined with this creates a harmony where the human element can be used as an object or gesture within the landscape. Creating another dimension that takes the picture away fromthe abstract figurative painting, or the abstract landscapeand becomes what these paintings resemble. The space between the human condition and the landscape andhow this is represented in paint .
