Paintings, Collage, Wood
The freedom in swapping from one medium to another suits my intuitive style of art making. In a recent change of media I started painting still-life which are inspired by the beautiful gentle work of Giorgio Morandi. Using a limited palette of colours I am enjoying the layering, the scratching and the sanding to reveal a previous history. Although the work may seem a big departure from the collage I have been making the principles are the same e.g. a found or discovered object, another placed alongside it, a contrast, a present and a past. I will be exhibiting both painted still-life and mixed media work in my studio/gallery this year.
