I have been concerned for over two decades with the sheer sculptural mass that oil paint can produce, the presence it projects. In my smaller works I employ spontaneity, not system, to intensify sensation across the canvas. I recently bought a stretcher with no idea of what I would paint. The process was related to the resources I had available: a few colours, two large tins of paint. My use of colour has not always been as sensual, as seductive as now. Brilliant yellows and creamy bright blues seemed necessary to achieve this moment of concentrated visual passion.

The Other Art Fair Melbourne New Work 2016 - 2017 May 2017

The new series of paintings continue with my observations of the West Australian light. Crisp and clear, the light in this location has been hard to ignore. At times, the light can be extremely abrasive. The unforgiving glare of the summer light forces one to retreat indoors. In the winter, a light soft and warm will lull you to bask in its rays. This light and glare is a truly remarkable experience like no other of this area. In the summer, The paintings have looked towards sunsets, sunrises and light that accompanied the sunny days and the physical abundance of the paintings surface is reflective of the intense feelings, which accompanies my paintings.
