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.

Very wet piece underway. Playing with light bouncing and motion and perspective.

So many things I’m liking about it . The result of another late night painting session. So interesting the transition from daylight to night and back again when looking at work.
40x60”

I was camping with a group of people . A friend and I were looking at the stars , others were looking at a campfire. It started a whirlwind of ideas about perspective and focus and , well , there are a bunch of pieces coming that investigate these ideas.

This piece ‘ unplugged- reflection 40x48” , is part of a new body of work I’ve sent to @dervilia_art_design that’s going to be exhibited at @artnowfineartfair www.artnow.ca . It’s live in person and online on September 22.

I’ve sent work from a number of series that I’ve been working on. The unplugged work is a bunch of work created from trips engaging in nature both near and further afield. Like all of my work , it hopes to create a conversation with the viewer that takes them somewhere beyond what I’ve conveyed in the confines of the canvas .

Playing around again. Working on some new ideas , colour combinations. 8x8” studies…. What will be next . I keep surprising myself.

None of these were anywhere close to what I was aiming for . I like misadventures.

Back in the studio after a bit of a break. Picked these from my garden. Enjoying the scent of dill.

Flowers or sketches or something else. So many possibilities. Exciting!

These pieces all found their way to one home . The client arranged them in this way, I love the progression of colour and ideas he made with his choices. I also believe that this sorta thing along with salon walls are excellent ideas. They allow the collector to easily rearrange the pieces so they are able to see things with clear eyes.

These pieces are part of my art for groceries series. I’m experimenting with new ideas with them and donating 10% of the proceeds towards charity. The 6x6” in this series (like these) are $185. Including tax. I’ll be refreshing my website with some other grocery pieces. (6x12, 6x8, 8x8”)
