Artist Statement I became an artist quite late in life (25) and I think the greatest gift this gave me was a sense of always being behind , especially during the years I formed my approach at Technical College and Art College.It was a great drive and it also gave me a more questioning attitude to were the value of art lies .I read frantically during those years ,books full of theories and high quality prints of paintings.
From my art you can see I was drawn to the modern and the abstract ,initially through Kandinsky who's sense of colour and intelligence of mind in conceiving the possibility of an abstract fine-art painting ,continues to inspire me.His peers Paul Klee and Franz Marc also had a significant impact on me.Pablo Picasso intrigued me but really only his Blue and Rose periods had an impact on my Aesthetic.
The next period of Art History that inspired me was were Surrealism met Abstract expressionism in the work of Arshille Gorky Joan Miro and early Jackson Pollock (before his drip painting method).You can see i am drawn toward colour and bold design with subtle line.This is what speaks to me, and it is this sense that I try to convey in my work.
Media to be is not important in the sense that i will use all, I paint ,I make prints, I draw,i sculpt, I take photographs, I create art on the computer, and occasionally I make video.At the moment i am working mostly digitally from photographs of my own paintings, drawings and etchings.For example my avatar is from two acrylic paintings drying digitally photographed and combined using software.When i create digital art i as a rule use my own art as source because i never want to become primarily a digital artist, drawing and painting are too important to me.
