Quick Facts
Statement

The abstract paintings explore the way that texture, colour, shape and mark making can suggest energy paths and histories. There is a fragmenting and deconstruction of form to show a kind of shattered effect. Shards of matter pull apart yet seem to swirl and reconfigure into new formations of meaning and focus. Visual references to elements such as fire, water, rock and cloud are used, and can suggest major dilemmas or resolutions. The strongly textured surfaces and bold primary colours become powerful forces that give a sense of upheaval and transition.
