The work in this gallery is acrylic based. The paintings are shown in reverse chronological order – the most recent paintings are at the top. In the last few years I’ve been spending more time exploring abstraction, although, I still like realism and I will be doing more in the future.
Gallery 1: This series of paintings started with a dreamt painting. I continued with the idea, exploring structure, colour and mood.
Gallery 2: These pieces are based on paintings I’ve dreamt I’ve painted. Many of them are highly textured, some have carved elements.
Gallery 3: These still lifes have a textured background and the objects are painted on smooth plaster. Often the shadow under the objects in emphasized by the physical line between the object and the ground.
Gallery 4: These still lifes have very deep grooves in the background that create shadows; the objects are painted on smooth plaster.
