Concepts My work has an architectural compositional quality allied to a strong involvement with colour. With extreme attentiveness to the materials, the images are constructed by a process of elimination, reproduction and distillation. Through this practice a concise and reductive formal language is established to be translated into rigorous acrylic abstracts. Influences From Malervich, Mondrian, Newman, Riley, Cubism, Constructivism, De Stijl, Modernism, the paintings build on that strong influence and historical development, but the strong flooding of colour comes from being fully in the modern world. The paintings respond to the stimulus of the here and now, including Warhol, Caulfield, Pop Art, technology and from what is in the air now, from the inside.
