Paintings 2023-24

Since moving to Norfolk permanently in 2013, I have been captivated by its wide, open landscape and ever changing skies. Since 2021, these features have affected my usual abstract approach to painting, allowing me to combine the amorphous, abstract qualities of clouds and skies with a free and fluid way of applying paint and colour. I stain diluted acrylic paint directly into unprimed canvas stapled to a board on the floor using sponges and squeegees. Then I develop the painting further using brushes. The resulting soft, blurred forms suggest cloud effects, light, atmosphere, and a mood can also be suggested. My series of  skyscapes and cloudscapes express these ephemeral, natural phenomena.

The pictures are listed from the most recent to earlier works.

Paintings 2006-2007

In these paintings I am using larger and more varied brushstrokes to establish more contrasts of shape and colour-areas within the composition. This gives colour a stronger role in the paintings. I am also creating a deeper space by using cooler blues and yellows which recede, while the reds and oranges come forward. Now the drawn brushstrokes appear to move in and out of space.

Paintings 2004-2005

Here you can see a selection of paintings created in the years 2004 and 2005, except for Light Reflections, 1999, which is the inspiration behind them all. These pictures are particularly vibrant and energetic. Feasts of colour and swirling movements, expressions of freedom and joy.




Paintings 2002-2003

Here you can see a selection of paintings created in the years 2002 and 2003. A theme that recurs in my work is the relationship between geometric shapes. Energy and movement are created through the use of spheres and rectangles and the ways in which they are juxtaposed. The shapes give a clear structure to the paintings and the colours are bright and assertive. Whatever I paint, my objective is to lift the spirit through visual means. For me, art must engender positive feelings.
