Of all the arts abstract painting is the most difficult, it demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for colours and that you be a true poet.
THE LAST IS ESSENTIAL.
My choice for expression is mixed media abstract painting as its through these mediums I'm able to synthesise the passion and joy i feel while creating, into something tangible.
My paintings are purely aesthetic, and subsequently enhance any home or corporate space.
I employ a variety of materials, from inks and enamels to acrylics and varnishes. Mixed media affords complete freedom of expression, while adding depth and interest to the painting.
Most of my work is heavily textured with contrasting elements, pairing glossy with matt, and smoothness with texture.
I draw inspiration from everything around me, nature holds a strong influence in my work, along with anything that captures my interest with its innate beauty.
The central image of my work varies, sometimes it’s a mere suggestion of a landscape, or it’s simply colour and texture speaking for itself. I view the world differently to most people, absorbing everything I see like a sponge, and drawing creativity from objects, like old rusted surfaces to the unexpected colour combinations found in nature.
I enjoy leaving my work open to the viewers’ imagination and interpretation, thus encouraging transcendence of the work itself. Very often my works are a journey without a destination, experimenting with the relationships that form out of spontaneous action. As an artist, I am in a process of discovery, seeking, and awareness of self and other.
