The paintings are formed through layering and manipulation.
The process is laborious, however during this repeated activity an interior and material language becomes established. The layered paint creates a material-like skin. These skins of pure paint are then assembled with the intention to create a surface where tone and shadow articulate form. Each painting becomes an autonomous object.
Mass, weight and volume become material characteristics. Surfaces create their own spaces, establishing environments within other environments which although adhere to the pictorial plane continue to extend, push through, over hang and displace the perimeters set to confine the painting.
Each painting is site sensitive and aims to animate its setting through articulating a visual body language.
