My work is mainly associated with boldly coloured landscapes (and some
figurative works) which investigate the edges between representation and
abstraction – the blurred cross-over between recognisable place, and
abstracted memory of a familiar scene.
More recently I have also been producing strongly coloured landscapes
based around bush themes – something I started doing 20 years ago, but
put aside, always hoping to explore further at a later date – which I’m now
starting to do.
I’m concerned with the excitement generated by the (both planned and
accidental) interaction of colours, contrasts and brushstrokes, as much as
with subject matter.
