My current work demonstrates my ongoing exploration of the medium of paint. Varying styles of paint application – the drip the splatter, the expressionistic-ally painted, the flat, the cartoon like, the smooth, the rough, all created with different types of paint, jostle for position on the finished canvas, desperate for a place in the ‘final cut’. Areas of paint, objects and various marks are laid down as I work then perhaps painted out as the work evolves and the composition develops. Happy accidents are as an integral part of the work as the clean and crisp or the neatly painted, one offsetting the other. The process of painting being equal too if not more significant than the chosen visual references and motifs.
