In my work I explore painting on two levels: the process of painting as a dialogue between form, colours and composition, creating a particular aesthetic; and the world created by the artist – part of what I’m interested in is creating a world within a frame more than making any statement. I feel any statement made is more an indirect comment on modern society. I deal with subjects that interest me as a person and examine them through the language of painting.
I investigate painting through its “significant form” (Clive bell) – the quality generated by the relations between line, colour and shape. Furthermore I believe that a work of art should firstly be seen in isolation and examined for its own properties and qualities, before being placed into its historical and cultural context. I’m interested in a painting as an isolated system of meaning, relative to itself, as if generating it’s own unique linguistic system.
Mixing a rational perspective with an irrational impulse, the whole process is the path to understand and deal with my world, in both its conscious and unconscious aspects.
