Interests and Personality
|Biography||I produce abstract paintings using acrylics on canvas. Bright, happy colours that appear almost child-like at first glance. My paintings are about shapes and colours and the way they relate to each other; the action takes place at the point at which they meet, the edge so to speak.
I have no formal training as an artist beyond reading Henry Miller's "The Angel Is My Watermark", but have instead super-imposed all that I have learnt as a musician on my painting (song-structure, instrumentation, etc... ). I believe this gives my work a freshness, as it isn't bogged down by convention and has a tremendous freedom of style.
I mainly concern myself with the Abstract, but also incorporate elements of Opart into my work. I find these mediums liberating and satisfying on a personal level because they involve the viewer, indeed they depend upon the audience taking an active role in their appreciation of the painting; it becomes a more involving and satisfying experience for all concerned.
