My paintings are pure abstraction. I work with the basic elements of painting: colour, materiality and bodily energy (drawing). My experience as an abstract painter is that colours take a particular form (or shape) requisite at any given moment to the emotions held in and expressed through the body at that moment. Colour and form are therefore married to emotion in the moment, but in order to be meaningful, this marriage must be informed by art history and an adequate mastery of techniques and materials. My recent paintings are poems and tableaux of moods, emotions and spirit.
