My paintings blend a scientific study of paint and the organic properties it can achieve by mixing, pouring and manipulating paint to represent a sublime abstracted notion of my subject.
By guiding the flow of liquids and paint, it mimics nature, capture its spontaneity, its organic growth.
The physical presence and surface of the painting is experienced as one would an object, but with added depth and qualities of light. There is an element of accident and chance in the work. The challenge is to mirror nature through organizing paint and composition in a coherent and aesthetic way.
As well as traditional paints I explore the use of industrial materials to make a beautiful and brutalist landscape . Concrete / cement slab , bitumen , coal , carbon and graphite , oil , iron and copper.
