About the postcard artworks
The chair paintings convey many messages: the missing person, the invitation to rest, isolation or just simply the beauty of light on an object. I am interested in pattern created through light falling on objects and how they blend into their environment. A still life of fruit has always conveyed a message of peace to me. The fruit can symbolise fertility and life. I find the placement of the organic fruit in a solid bowl a perfect juxtaposition of textures for oil painting.
