It is an interest in architecture and a fascination with the way space is taken up in our cities that have led to these pieces, as well as the patterns, repetition and colours found in the built environment.
My ‘Paperscapes’ are predominantly white, low relief multi layered contoured maps of pattern and structure. Geometrically abstract, systematic, but also spontaneous and intuitive, they explore ideas about rhythm, sequence, repetition, light and space.
Each painting is an exploration, a journey between and through layers, a build-up of moments in time and intuitions followed. The alchemy of the painting process transforms time spent into a physical and tangible history that can be read as colour, texture, shape, structure; a visual poetry.
