Artist

My work practice is an investigation into the possibilities of colour as a language. I use touch, geometry, and systems combined with the totally random, to arrive at an essentially expressive, romantic language. Drawing and measurement try to make an irrational world rational, and by so doing, tame it. Colour eludes measurement and the rational, slipping beyond meaning. This work is a fusion of both these things, and incapable of standing without the inherent tension between colour and drawing.
