I work with both rudimentary and fine art materials, with a resolution to meld painting, sculpture, and the built environment; articulating colour, expressing weight, often producing random outcomes as a part of this process. I often use simplistic systems of production, creating repeating forms of ascending or descending scale to initiate an idea and then allow process or chance to disrupt; allowing materiality to be extrapolated and guide the outcome rather than striving for a pre-determined outcome.
Outside of the realm of studio and gallery space there must be a dialogue with the outside world we inhabit and the human experience. How to resolve this within a process-based methodology within the abstract tradition is a question that has informed recent works. Resolving how to identify and select the representational and incorporate it within an abstract framework; considering the inherent materiality or symbolic quality or an object, formal shapes, vernacular methods or patterns, are treated as “data” and either become subsumed or otherwise act as a foil within the composition.
