My work in oil draws on a wide range of materials, techniques and references but largely remains true to non-representational minimalist works with the grid and line formats in particular.
The principal of the handmade and the concept of recycling and rearranging is also a strong element of my work often cutting, shredding and collaging to create emotive abstract outcomes.
The main reference for these works comes from the US 60's/70's minimalist abstract movement and in particular the work of Sol LeWitt, Ellsworth Kelly, Kenneth Nolan and Agnes Martin.
However, the richness of my oil palette (as compared to my soft acrylic palette) comes as a consequence of my experimentation with techniques developed in the early 1900's by American artist Maxfield Parrish. This involves multiple layers of thin glazes to create rich colours with outstanding depth and translucency.
I do hope you find the richness and use of these colours as a pleasure in and of itself and as a feast for the eyes and soul.
