Biography

I began exploring colour and emotion through painting after I experienced the powerful impact of Mark Rothko’s ‘Seagram Mural’ paintings in the Tate. I wanted to make work that created a similar response and this is still my driving force. I began with filmed sequences of landscape layered with colour and sound but I have moved into exploring colour alone. I am experimenting with different rhythms and simple forms while using only four colours of blue, yellow, red and green plus white and black in layers of different transparency. I don't use sound because I am concerned with the "musicality" of the moving image.
