My painting are intuitive constructions of colour and space.

I see my paintings as “windows”, that enlighten and stimulate the viewer.

As windows, they look out into a painted layered environment, while bringing in light, colour and retinal pleasure. There is positive outlook in making the paintings: to find solutions that balance (to have stability), while at the same time to have possibilities of unbalance (to be able to topple) within the construction.

This dual construction is one component which sits beside the “colours”. As the construction works on two levels, so the colours
have mutual relationships. Often two colours buffering up to each other yet sympathetic in range and tones.

For these paintings to work – it is a delicate balancing act.
