About

I am fascinated by the interplay between sight and touch, and between chaos and control. My paintings are as much concerned with physicality of surface as with image.

Through changes of light, as well as through movement of the viewer, the images constantly shift, metamorphose, entice and elude. From the trace of a touch, shapes are discovered, magnified, and taken from their original context. Paint is dropped on to stretched linen, forming a matrix of globules, like rain on a window pane. The colour of the paint may be the colour of shadows, intense and quiet, and cool on warm linen. Like the elusive and ghostly cells which float in the field of vision between the eye and what we see, the shapes are intangible and playful, never settling.
