As a painter for more than 40 years I have endeavoured to elicit a visceral experience for the viewer, from my paintings. My interest is not only WHAT (subject) I’m painting but HOW (process) I physically make a painting. Even though I like a good story, my subjects are the paintings themselves. I have developed a very personal way of applying my materials onto the canvas, in spirit, much like Pollock or Frankenthaler dripping or pouring. I am using a 600 year old medium (oil paint) and re-invented (altered) it to suit my unique process. My paint surfaces are either highly reflective (without topical varnishes) or extremely rough and textured. The brush has rarely touched my final paint surface.
