July Open Studios
My paintings reflect my feeling for music in rhythm and harmony. The vibrancy of oil paints allows the possibility of colours to sing and 'talk' to one another. Shapes and forms indicate themes that reoccur such as doorwayys, portals and paths. The eye is led to entries that take the viewer on a journey into the picture as well as back out again, round corners , leading sometimes behind and sometimes in front.Landscapes come to mind. Colours are often overlaid some of which are opaque saturated colours whilst others are transparent and veiled depending on the depth of tone that I want to achieve. I have an iterest in both direct spontaneous gestural painting as well as more over painted compositions that show the history of the painting process.
