These are works on paper. They are exploring ideas, whether that be of images suspended in space, the capturing of cast shadows or experiments potentially leading to considered paintings.

Suspended

Acrylic on paper

67cm by 75cm

These organic shapes hang in the pictorial space. Their forms captured my imagination and, in allowing my pencil to wander, one of them became a face. For me it raises questions as to what they are, where they are and what they are part of. My personal view is that the best work presents you with mystery and leaves you wondering.

Coming Together

This piece is capturing a coalescence of organic masses. It feels very much like a snapshot of the action and that, had I waited, more material would have arrived which would have informed the work further.

Expansion

This study developed from a small section of another work. I used the colour and marks to explore what might be and whether it could be developed into a painting. It was made with spontaneity and quick consideration.

Falling Shadows

The dance of the shadows recorded in ‘real’ time. The brightness and heat of the sun are embedded in the painting surface.
