A word by the artist
My paintings don’t have a goal, they are my road from the world around me to the unknown and the way out… My love for words is apparent in almost all my work. Without any preset idea of what I’m going to do with quite an eclectic choice of media...I listen to music or to the birds outside or to the silence and then start out with a line or a word that I write on the canvas with charcoal or marker or paint-stick or whatever really that can be used for that. Inspiration is music, books, thought, people, nonsense, dreams & the ridicule of life. I like to use all sorts of media together because of it’s different textures and feel, the dryness of charcoal for instance is so subtle next to the shiny smoothness of oilpaint and nothing has a nicer dark than the velvet of burnt wood. The crumbly texture of oilstick stands out real crisp over a flat surface of color. I often feel like a shaman or some sort of DJ, mixing and smearing, brushing and scraping, looking then wiping with loads of turpentine and then mixing again then covering it all until I’ve done enough digging with my eyes I can see something emerging that shows itself like a song or a poem and only then there might be subject matter or a core sense that makes me want to look more at what I maybe already saw or knew…only now it’s become a different shape in the square of a canvas.
