Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot physically see with his eyes... Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an explosion into unknown areas
My abstract paintings are usually based around an initial idea but often simply develop through the application of paint onto the canvas, panel or paper. Its exciting to see what often develops as often I have no idea when I begin what the end result will be.
Colour, shapes, marks and composition emerge during the painting process. The combinations of these may look physical places or spaces but they are abstract in intent. This makes the process exciting and uncertain at the same time, resulting in often surprising results.
