As a Matter of Fact…it’s all about Fiction; NEW paintings!
My latest offerings are painted in acrylic on loose canvas. I was responding to the crazy alien times in which we find ourselves. Surreal, virtual, dystopian…and curiously flat!! (Sugar comedown!?) Like a candy-counter culture we are drowning in a multicoloured haze of compartmentalized rabbit holes through which we tumble into the arms of another crazy…
Emergent Being: New Work!
Paranoia is like mud pouring down upon us, creating dark corners inside us, destroying our light. Our world is restricted, contained, confined – Divided and locked within itself…and yet…
I’m literally running out of colours as I run down and exhaust my paint supplies. However, I have lots of black. Haven’t we all? Love black! 😍 Why I’ve not worked in monochrome before baffles me?! I love it! Simple with just a blush of cadmium orange. Nice! 😁 Simple is hard to achieve, but…
Ghost of a Chance
I love the textures of nature and this is like a garden for the eye. My son could see all sorts in here. There’s a ghost of a chance we might make something out of nothing. Abstract art is great practice for the brain to see what it sees in the chaos. Its another level.…
Its time for the rebels to fly! Enquiries welcome 😉 I have since edited this piece and it now looks like this…

Earth Power Rising: finished artwork now available! 😅
Here it is! My new work! I’m quite pleased with it as it’s my first large oil on canvas for a while and I’m already churning with new ideas for my next piece, which means I’ve made a decision to stop here, though of course there’s always more that could be done. Sometimes it’s good…
I started out by painting a random shape that I thought looked like a desert rock formation or perhaps a Dr. Seuss drawing.
This painting was done over a few months with many reworks and lots of daring obliterations, which I will document for you later. I was particularly inspired by DeKooning for this one and his relentless layering and the building of texture.
I can’t say too much about this painting’s inspired origins because it’s wildly personal, suffice to say, it really happened;) Much of my work is autobiographical and draws from direct experience represented in the wild clashes of color and reflective materials that I frequently use. It really does look like my life when I’m on…
GRACE UNDER PRESSURE
I started this painting on Christmas day 2017 and it emerged chunk by chunk until the new year. It felt like a very primal painting to make, it was very spontaneous and I spent very little time editing. It all came out fully formed and I enjoyed the childlike splodges of paint enough to admonish…
