Painting for me is an attempt at communication. Being human is a strange thing, and words fail me when I try to make sense of it. But words aren’t the only means at our disposal. All forms of art are basically methods of assimilating and conveying our experiences, and painting is the method that seems most natural to me.
My paintings often refer to various historical and contemporary sources of inspiration. Because they are abstract, like music, this is not so different from a composer setting a poem to music to create a song.
I paint to varying degrees of ‘finish,’ but always with close attention to detail. My paintings are typically small in scale and invite careful scrutiny. Rough edges, exposed paper and visible brush strokes are often retained for their expressive force, but I avoid impasto, drips and other techniques that might draw attention to the paint itself. My focus is always on the content of my pictures; the colours, lines and shapes are only a means to that end.
