Object History

From the artist’s studio

Object Literature

“I am fundamentally concerned with making compositions that connect us to a powerful emotional energy. I always start a painting with the aim of capturing something fleeting and internal, something other than the physical. I like art that achieves a composition that reverberates on this vital level, among those artists whom I admire are William Gillies, Nicolas de StaĆ«l, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Arthur Boyd. I admire these brave, big hearted paintings which are unselfconscious and joyful. Painters who are unashamed to let their simple colours out.

In my paintings an abstract composition is the heart of the mood but I love objects and people and I want to paint them. Subject matter is becoming more and more important to me. I will spend days obsessing over what object a painting is thirsting. My work is quite varied because I believe that my best work is when I am experimenting.”
