“The Mirror”. This painting in acrylics was made in Jan 91 and is about an opening – a window, mirror, inside/outside, light/dark. Here I examine the act of looking and seeing – which are not the same. This image slows down the important moment of unknowing that always exists just before recognising what is seen.
“The New Idea” created January 2013. This new series of images comes out of my contemplation of creativity which I have been thinking (visually) about for the past 5 years. In the 20th Century, artists who first developed abstract art forms, when asked what their art was about would often state something fundamental like.. it is “an arrangement of form and colour”. To this I would add that my art is also dealing with motion and light, as much as 2 dimensional pieces can.
“The Thoughts of an Artist” created November 2012. I created this image to show how I experience creative thought (which I can not separate from vision) – the expressive form of a moment of novelty. This interior creative ‘space’ within each of us is real, is palpable when activated, then it becomes filled with form in motion. In this image I explore the inner space as a new landscape in order to understand the compelling nature of creativity.
