AB STRACT ACTION
Action combined with emotion along with my topic of interest are ingredients that make up my art practice.
For me my practice is the consistent Action of manipulating materials and methods for visual interpretation. What unfolds on paper, panel, canvas or various substrates becomes the abstraction. Something that does not directly portray topic/object.
The abstract work is a mix of sub-conscious and conscious mark making expressed from observations, research, travel etc. on that which I am passionate about.
Systematically this focuses on natural phenomena; geology, altered landscape, minerals and effects from climate. My work is organized by sense of format, composition, colour and tone. Materiality plays a big part in developing visual language that signifies mystery and other meaningful dimensions. I believe this happens more often in moments of experimentation and letting go of control, which is the opposite of building realistic painting and rendering, the latter being an excellent practice in eye-hand co-ordination.
