Acrylic on paper

This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Artist at Wysing Arts Centre, Bourn, Cambridge, UK.
My work is often very sparse in its content. The elements I use are minimised until only that which is ‘active’ remains. This reduction is essential as it allows for greater control over each of these elements and, crucially, allows me to eliminate any accident in favour of ‘conscious choice’. The precision is also functional; further emphasising that even details, of sometimes only one millimetre or less, are intentional and not the result of chance. Creating a situation where the viewer is fully aware that every nuance has been considered and is not the outcome of a serendipitous act.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
These works form part of an ongoing and experimental series of ‘Structure Paintings’ which explore the phenomenon of spatial illusion and the reality of the flat picture plane.
You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
