ARTIST STATEMENT

I portray reality on canvas. Not just visual reality but philosophical reality, emotional reality, experiential reality, spiritual reality etc. I take the visual landscape nature expresses to us in the form of visual light and filter it through concepts derived from the non visual experiences of reality and express it in a new visual representation.

Reality in its simplest form can be understood as duality, therefore the complexity of nature can be seen as many dualities. The theory would be that duality is to nature as what binary is to computing.

Within nature there is an eternal dance between opposing forces. I take these opposing forces and analyse them one at a time in a process of simplification and embellishment to form a new visual language. Often a new body of work will be influenced by an experimentation with a particular duality of opposing forces. One of these concepts for this body of work has been dynamism vs tranquility. I have also planned the works in this show to move between muted and saturated colour.
