This is my favourite painting from a set of small abstract studies done consciously limiting the application of paint to directional line. In effect simplifying the process.
Two small landscapes created with a limited pallet, experimenting with using a bright ground. I plan to use the same process at a much larger scale in the future.
This is part of a set of abstract paintings exploring LGBTQ non binary identity.
Whilst sketching urban scenes in London, I was struck by how similar the patterns of marks I was creating to represent the people (moving through the space) were to the shoreline paintings I had been doing previously. This led me to develop some of these sketches, exploring the relationships between these marks.
I did a series of small paintings on board from sketches of the eroded chalk forms on the beach between Brighton and Seaford. The idea of the erosion led me to experiment with textured pastes, added to the board before painting, and applying the paint in layers and washes.
I was continuing to exploring abstraction in my work. I am always delighted when people interpret my paintings, bringing their own narratives.
