Statement

 'WHAT LIES BENEATH'

This body of work started in 2009 could be defined as pure abstraction. There are very clear influences annd references that perculate through, not least a fascination with old and somewhat delapidated buildings. The impression of damp and decay eating away layers of paint and plaster reveal interesting colours and texture, sometimes faded  or enhanced by extreme light have helped create a visual language that is steadily evolving.

Many of the works expose a texture born out of much underpainting, scraping and rubbing down. It is these different random colours that sneak through the top layer. The last mark of the process is the 'flick' of a heavily loaded brush across the canvas as the final statement of completion.

'MAYO'

This ongoing body of work depicts abstract impressionist landscapes of the far west of Ireland centreing on Achill Island and Clew Bay.

The dramatic changing weather,sometimes bleak and ferociously wild,often pushes the landscape and colours to crazy extremes. Many tones and proportions are exaggerated and distorted to emphasize these changing elements.

There are two clear phases to this body of work the first uses mixed media on both board and paper,the second acrylic on canvas.
