Statement

Statement

            For the last three years I have explored the art historical myth of the 12th century artist, Giotto and his “perfect circle”. I have now deviated from this singular idea. These painted circles not only represent the obsessive qualities familiar in my previous work, but also reveal an intuitive ,  rhythmic  order. This simple theme is intimate and vast yet obvious and oblique.  Some have suggested that they appear to be a secret code or language and this has a remote possibility because a lot of the work is begun in western written form, from left to right. Through repetition to the point that they have become ritualistic, these circles mark a time and hold a space that I have touched as an artist. Begun as a challenge to myself to see if a “perfect circle” was even possible- these circles have evolved into an important study in patience and hopefully, one day, I will be able to unearth a hidden truth that I know they contain.
