CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACT PAINTINGS
Exhibiting at SOHO GALLERIES 2013
This high energy body
of work has been created over a substantial time period. It can take up to 4 or
5 weeks from starting a painting, depending on the layers. In certain parts of
the work to being sent on its way into the gallery, there are up to 8 layers
and processes in different areas of any particular work.
The varied choices of
processes I use depend a great deal on the type of story I am telling in that
particular work. Some areas of intense interest are done with tools such as the
point of a needle. Numerous brushes from extra large to the tiniest are used for detailing.
I love to concentrate on the ‘Please come
closer’ invitation. I often attach to the body of work, to show the dual effect created on the
I class my work as
mixed media because there can be as many as 20 to 30 different materials used
at any given time.
I often have to crush
powder or liquefy many of these high quality art products that I bring in from
overseas unprocessed due to the fact I have a very individual application of
the products which keeps my work ever evolving, intriguing and hopefully just
as exciting to every new viewer of my work.
