Statement

 

"For me the essence of painting is all about the paint itself, its colour and texture. The physicality of paint is equally as important as the depiction of place. My technique for applying the medium rarely results in visible brushstrokes, lending an air of obliqueness to the process as well as the subject. This ambiguity is further enhanced by my preference for painting at the margins of the day."
