Themes for my paintings stem from inspirations in life, the human form and the man-made world, along with personal feelings about life and death. Dissolving fragmentation & visual distortion of subjects serve as a metaphor for issues of personal identity and my exuberant palette of colours become a metaphor for life. Breath, growth and development symbolize energy – motion – nothing remains static – human life is a trajectory of the soul and the spirit, the ghost that moves and stirs within each life form.
All works are painted on board (unless otherwise specified). Boards are professionally constructed and have a solid frame on all four sides – then the timber board top is attached. Timber is then sealed and gessoed (just like a canvas is treated) followed by an undercoat before the painting has been commenced. As the painting is extended to ‘wrap-around’ the frame, there is no need to add any other framing to the painting. All works are first painted in an acrylic layer followed by an oil paint layer then finished off with varnish.
