Many features of my working process have led me recently to the parallel concepts in the Chinese philosophy of Taoism. Specifically the themes of 'going with the flow' and balance/duality.

My painting process is one which relies on instinct. I am open to change whilst feeling my way through the painting. Duality has been a constant theme in my work as I play with colour complementaries and instinctively balance light/dark, soft/hard, intricate/vast, opaque/transparent.

Previously I have used the golden ratio and PHI spiral within my compositions. I've now become interested in looking at why an image simply looks 'right'. A search for a visual archetype.

      Hi Rob, the best idea is to contact the gallery directly on 0141 942 4683 and they will keep you right with what’s possible and what’s not – which appears to be changing all the time! All the best.
