Process Layered | Edges | Gesture and Geometry Collide 

There is no hierarchy in my studio practise between drawing and painting; drawing and painting co-exist equally. I don’t start with a clear idea of a ‘finished’ image, it’s all about process. Drawing informs and underpins the initial ‘laying out’, colour is intuitive, tonal, then Intuition and serendipity drive the work forward.

“Like a researcher in his laboratory, I am the first spectator of the suggestions drawn from the materials. I unleash their expressive possibilities, even if I do not have a very clear idea of what I am going to do. As I go along with my work I formulate my thought, and from this struggle between what I want and the reality of the material - from this tension - is born an equilibrium”.
