It is a surprise to me that I have found Abstract Art of absorbing interest.
For some time I concentrated on an abstraction process, in a world between the real and the abstract and my fascination for that will continue.
Nowadays I am trying to paint without any representational references, although I cannot prevent a viewers perception of something ‘real’, rooted in their own experience. I try to leave out marks and shapes suggesting some reality.
What remains is colour, always ready to catch the emotions.
The circle paintings began when I was looking for a fresh stimulus and decided to ignore the edge of the rectangular frame by producing a circle – accepting that its size is limited by that of the frame. Another change for my experiments was to use as the support a large piece of blotting paper, make it very wet and tie a loaded brush to a large compass for the mark making.
The Diptych and Painting in Four Parts are my responses to the Square Metre Challenge. The Four Parts can be rearranged at will.
All my work is in acrylic paint.
