‘DRAWN TO THE LIGHT’
My paintings continue as poetic maps and signposts of the human
Beginning with an energetic and spontaneous textural ground, energy lines or marks appear and fade, enliven and delineate. Symbols, metaphor, abstracted imagery – free from convention - embodies, balances and celebrates the
pre-cerebral and the intellectual in a very material manner.
Veins of subject matter are mined and a series of work in acrylic on canvas
or panel is explored. ‘Light on Water’ affirms even as it embraces the
ephemeral. The shape, colour and vibration of light intrigues me. Each ‘Individual Tree’ exhibits a particular quality, presence, and energy. Every ‘Open Vessel’
portrays an essence and potential of positive space. ‘Sacred Geometry’ reveals an elemental mystery and more.
The ancient and the contemporary both speak to me. I am drawn to the light whether out in the wider wonderful world or closer by in the gardens, forests, ocean and mountains of nature surrounding my studio.
Constantly I sense and see a silent language before thought - a mystical unifying inner reality of simplicity and oneness, light and dark…beauty.
