Inspired by the emotional impact of colour and colour relationships, I paint at the boundary between the abstract and the representational, leaving plenty of room for the observer to make their own interpretations.
In most of my work I'm aiming to achieve a sense of layered depth, visible in works such as Babel, Left Bank and Coming up for Air, or collaging-without-collage, illustrated in Boundary Fault and The Other Side of Mont St-Victoire. My goal is to produce artwork that leads the eye in not only the two dimensions of the canvas but also into the painting itself.
I also produce more expressive works such as Tango, Bebop, and Red Cognition, often using acrylic inks, enamel paints, or a mix of these media.
My artwork varies in scale from postcard-sized to metre scale canvases.
Amongst my inspirations I count Nicolas de Staël, Joan Mitchell, Mark Tobey, Paul Klee, André Derain, and Franciszka Themerson.
