Through the Streets
My work evolves from the places that I choose to spend time in. it is about looking, contemplation and absorbing a sense of time and place. The process of making my work relies upon fragmented residual memories.
My focus is on recreating my experiences and responses to architectural spaces that have captured my interest with the intention of conveying sensations of moving through them, from interior to exterior and from varying vantage points.
The interplay between light and shadow that occurs at different times of day; the highlighting of shape and pattern, the subtlety and drama of colour changes brought about by fluctuating light on surface. These are the components of my work.
I begin from first hand experiences and support my evolving ideas with reference to my drawings and photographs combined with the strong evocative memories and sensations. These I explore and develop primarily on the canvas as I seek out new ways of describing my experiences. Colour. light, space and form are at the core of my interest.
