Edges, planes, layers and tensions between 2 and 3 dimensions. Geometry and process.
Transparent and opaque layers, solid and floating forms, matte and shiny surfaces and colours. As the light changes or the viewer changes their gaze, forms become visible or disappear.
These are process- driven paintings where systems and geometric shapes, forms and colours are distorted and changed as the painting emerges. The compositions are largely intuitive and somewhat unpredictable but all relate in some way to the canvas structure or edge of the paper or canvas.
