WORKS

THE PHYSICAL ACT OF PAINTING

“Emphasising the physical act of painting itself, my works are most often completed in one sitting and rarely made from preliminary sketches. Void of rich Symbolism or complicated reference, wishing in the most direct way possible to convey to the viewer the energy and joy that went into their creation.

Through large gestural masses, universal concepts of form and proportion are expressed. In darkness and muted hues the presents of light and color are felt. Using a limited color palette and most often black as the prominent color, I search for the most genuine way to express the marriage between human qualities and material property.

Favouring large formats I invite the viewer to be absorbed by giving the opportunity for internal reflection. An intuitive understanding must come before intellectual comprehension. In that sense, the former delves more deeply into the heart of beauty.”
