As a multidisciplinary artist, my interests lie in mark making, using the gesture to create the dramatic & the visceral. Regarding the female ‘nude’ it is one of context, social & political, regarding the identity and status of women, it is historical and cultural, with a fascination rooted in the world of fashion.
As well as female life studies and abstract paintings, I make text based paintings, use photography, write and perform my own poetry.
I don’t feel that this dilutes my focus, on the contrary, and in accordance to what’s available as a means of artistic expression, the parameters broaden every decade and art and artistic license encompasses a wider field of disciplines. I see everything as a ‘work in progress’. In art as in life, nothing is ever completely finished, it’s just a stepping-stone to the next idea and the next project.The reoccurring, or underlying, theme of my work seems to be at is simplest, one of abstracting the feminine and feminising the abstract.
