Current Projects

Most of these works deal with an inner mythology through different planes. This way of varying the surface of the work by attaching further pieces of material emerged from an earlier series where the canvas was flooded and manipulated into a 3D landscape. The charred pieces of wood are attached to a stretcher frame in front of this. The fragments of text are from my last book, Jason Smith's Nocturnal Opera. They refer to an inner world of dissolving forms, with a geography that challenges normal expectations of illusion and space. The Encounter drawings derive from the human body, extending a vocabulary that helps to inform larger work. 

 

At the moment I feel this way of working provides me with a magic workshop at that interchange of observation and dream where new kinds of painting can still be developed.
