What is beyond, acrylic on cotton (detail)

What is beyond, acrylic on cotton (detail)

 

My current work explores broken grids.  These appeared in a painting inspired by Virginia Woolf’s first novel, ‘The Voyage Out’.  I wrote in my journal:

‘And there is also the thought that the grids represent a veil – allowing glimpses beneath, whilst also distorting and hiding, shading, holding back.  Is this something to do with the spirit – which is unseen and yet it’s presence is felt, known, acknowledged and simultaneously hidden from view?’

I like my paintings to flow, and will literally pour my paint onto a canvas, paper, threads or glass. Using oils and acrylics, the drying time varies enormously and I usually have more than one piece in progress at once.

Visible, Invisible, Veiled‘ is the title of this continuing body of work, which sees me walking in the woods, photographing broken grids wherever I find them, reading, writing and naming my pieces after their creation – quite a departure for someone who up until now has focussed upon interpreting a piece of music, a book or a poem.
