Over the summer I worked on exploring and experimenting with composition and colour, sharing very little with others and trying to ride the ‘production wave’ to the max. Now that winter is around the corner I’ve slowed down and took this as an opportunity to reflect. I’ve finished over 20 new paintings, which look like an entirely new body of work. Most of it is abstract and is quite different to what I used to do a year ago.
I’m often asked what is it that I paint? and what is the idea behind it. I can honestly say that most of the ideas come from looking around me and seeing the big picture. I don't see details and I look for big masses and shapes. The rhythm of the work comes from the mood I am in the moment. Painting when you are in a good mood only, can be counter productive. This is why I focus on experiences rather than feelings and channel them into my work. When you look at my work I hope it grabs your attention and takes you to a good place.
