Born in 1959 - United Kingdom
biography under completion
Over time and through a process of elimination and reduction, my paintings have developed gradually from abstract thought's and ideas into a more cohesive viewpoint, and is driven by and derived from personal experience. Travel and the need to escape is an important source for me, yet my paintings are not specific to any location.
My work revolves around ideas concerning beauty, loss, damage and renewal and the ensuing vulnerability that occurs when exposing these feelings. The tensions and contradictions that exists between containment and chaos, and the idea that beauty restores what fury has demolished, clarifies in my paintings the anxiety that links the two together, a bond so fraught that it remains muted to reveal moments of calm.
I believe anger and fear may be expressed in a variety of ways and can even be eventually transformed into the opposite, into a sort of pictorial interpretation, one that suggests to the viewer a calmness, joy and beauty, one that which belies the rage that lies beneath, a form of passive, perhaps gendered rage, one that turns inwards instead of outwards; towards a reality that is in a continual state of flux and dislocation and the isolation that occurs between contemporary society and the natural world.
