My belief in being an artist comes from the natural ability to observe and watch. In observing we see through and into the object.
I am searching for a different way to represent the familiar. I have developed my own immediate response to a technique developed by the abstract artist Jackson Pollock, whilst studying his process at University. His unique style has inspired me to produce a fluid, energetic, representational reaction to his work. Working mainly in acrylic paint, ink or domestic emulsion paint; I work directly from the tube or paint pot. Using a stick or tube to flick and direct the paint from a standing position over the paper or canvas.
With my work I am interested in expressing a sense of power, movement, strength, and masculinity whatever the subject matter.
"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web."
