statement

The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.

New sketches happening . I’m interested to see what happens when they get bigger . It’s been awhile since I was interested in painting panoramic type paintings but I think that might be changing . #change #sketch #study #bridge #spring ...

This 54x54” -arcs of light- was available through the #agoartrental it’s been placed apparently 🙂 . ......................That little piece I’m offering to someone who donates towards a charity of their choice has one more day for entries. I’m quite pleased with the response . I’ve had over 10 entries , yay. It’s a beautiful , sunny spring day. Hankering to get down to my allotment garden, alas not today. Happy spring!! #painting #oilpainting #abstractlandscape #contemporarylandscape #spring ...
