The motivation to create is an impulse. For me it comes from the connection between my visual, emotional and mental consciousness. I utilize the process of painting as an activity; analysis, and reflection. My work explores memory and experiences, and the passions and impulses that move between them. Viewing my work, as well as creating it, is a process of exploration. It is a fluid engagement that, as in life, can be interrupted and always changing.
By utilizing the language of abstraction, and holding ambiguous connections to the outside world, I can remain at a distance with the audience. Colour and gesture and form are used to develop imagery and evoke emotion. The nuances of these elements are manipulated to strike a tone in the viewer with which to relate and engage on their own intimate experience of observation. They remain ambiguous however, and at times absurd, allowing the search to continue and transform. By guiding the viewer without providing enough information for an objective conclusion, the work remains in transition. I immerse myself into these scenarios, an intensely personal immersion, where finding a balance between spontaneity and control, the calm and chaotic, becomes part of my challenge
