The paintings reflect the investigation of nature's textures, organic imperfection and the tangled web of life. The sensuous and fascinating organic surfaces are built up with textiles, sand and plaster, with relief elements inspired by ancient frescos, urban decay and direct observation of the natural world. Through the process of gestural random intuitive acts of painting and controlled mark making an organic textural imagery is built up with succesive layers of paint, sanding, scraping, pouring, dripping, erasing, staining, and multiple glazes to create a surface rich with nuance and vibrant colour. Responding — revealing, a moment, a decision, touching — elements in flux fluid, weaving, liquid paint fusion.
