This new series of work has taken me in a direction which opened my perception, not simply by the application of paint - or to convey any direct reference to nature or the built environment - but was brought about by the laying down of the material itself.
These new directions were also concurrent with our world - which was sliding into a time that startled us by its intensity. Chaos was real - and in my studio I engaged also with another kind of turmoil by allowing an impulsive - unruly play. However disorder tends towards order and this influence me as I worked with flourish towards a resolution. Surfaces undone, reworked and remade, (un) intentional irregularities evolved - fundamental to my aesthetic - along with the compositional considerations impacting me at a visceral level.
This process took me finally into ordered silence of elementary beauty.
