Although my work is open to interpretation, it is held together by a common thread, namely the relationship between the intentional and unintentional. I often attempt to make the intentional look unplanned and the unintentional appears deliberate.
My paintings are arrived at by a process of action and reaction.
There are controlled, conscious marks but there are also marks that are ‘accidental’ or less controlled. I actively seek the ‘accident’ when painting in order to avoid the predictable. There is a constant dialogue between the accident and the planned, and between the artist and each composition, which leads the work forward. It is this dialogue, that I hope makes for a layered and surprising piece.
