ARTIST STATEMENT

At first glance the three categories of work in this exhibition may seem very different from each other. I, however, bring to all my work the same overriding attention to the formal demands of painting: to shape relationships, tonal weight, treatment of light and space, drawing, structure of composition and so on.

How these formal components harmonise with the recognisable subject matter I leave to my intuition. That is when my vision is fully realised. That is when, hopefully, the mystery is created.

My subject matter is, as always, drawn from my observation of and reaction to  all aspects of my social and physical environment. In this exhibition it ranges from celebratory plein air watercolours to more incisive oils reflecting social observation and commentary, with emphasis on the changing urban landscape. This, of course, does not preclude an overlap of ideas and emotions in any one work regardless of medium or imagery.

Each of the two mediums used in this exhibition brings its particular demands. The light (this is of paramount importance to me) in my plein air watercolours must be captured instantly with preferably no more than two washes that are tonally well judged and swiftly executed. These, all done in tropical heat and light, were executed in a few hours each. On the contrary the tones and light in my oils were slowly built up, layer after layer and took anywhere from days to years to achieve.

Ultimately, regardless of the medium, the degree of representation or abstraction, or the subject matter, a  consistency of vision should show through. I hope it does.
