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.

Today for #tbt , confined chaos , one of my urban garden pieces currently @bugeramathesongallery . This painting of my allotment garden seems timely with it’s garlic scapes and poppies and satellite dishes and exuberance. The gardeners I know are getting excited about seed catalogues and starting plants and planning .

Every year I look in envy at the people who map out their gardens. My gardens always need spaces for their self seeded arugula, poppies, nasturtiums and other welcome survivors.

It’s another snowy day outside. (Perfect snowman snow) inside the studio we have a fecund forest. It’s kind of steamy in there ,and the leaves are quivering in a slight breeze. What do you see?

This very wet as yet untitled piece is 24x48”
