Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
My painting practice illustrates a very personal pictorial language, that has taken shape initially after spending time in remote areas of Australia… I Build the composition, using oil paint, with loose abstract shapes and spontaneous brushstrokes; Asserting energy and conviction.
This process of painting has developed over the last 20 plus years, growing increasingly more abstract. Carrying a sketchbook with me, I always draw & paint on location…
Observed shapes, colours & rhythms are decoded in the studio onto canvas & board; Reflecting memories & feelings of that location…
I can’t leave a painting until I know it is finished; Even if that means re-visiting it over long periods of time!
