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.

A sunny day recollection on a snowy day . A canoe trip painting. 40x48”. ................................................................................................I’ve been listening to Dan Carlin’s ‘hardcore history’ , it seems a fitting reminder on this day when we are thankful of the sacrifices of those who fight and fought for our freedom. ...

A little piece . 10x10 inches . I use them to try out ideas and because I like the page I follow @enormoustinyart . It got me rethinking small scale work . This piece along with a number of other little ones I’ve been doing are strong pieces in their own right which pleases me . Now for something bigger ... #torontoart #smallart #newwork #abstractlandscape ...
