Artist Statement

My belief in being an artist comes from the natural ability to observe and watch. In observing we see through and into the object.

 

I am searching for a different way to represent the familiar. I have developed my own immediate response to a technique developed by the abstract artist Jackson Pollock, whilst studying his process at University. His unique style has inspired me to produce a fluid, energetic, representational reaction to his work. Working mainly in acrylic paint, ink or domestic emulsion paint; I work directly from the tube or paint pot. Using a stick or tube to flick and direct the paint from a standing position over the paper or canvas.

 

With my work I am interested in expressing a sense of power, movement, strength, and masculinity whatever the subject matter.
