My Paintings can be separated into three different styles, Figurative, Impressionistic, Abstract. But fundamental to all my work is the focus on the material quality of the paint, it is central to all my paintings.
I am exploring the surface of paint and its change in terms of light reflection and absorption. The use of silver allows me to experiment with light in the environment and its interaction with the painting, the surface of silver is cetching light and seems to dig into the two dimensions of the picture plane. The black paint on the canvas and the changing brightness is pushing and pulling the light forwards and backwards causing structure to appear and disappear.
