Abstract observations of natural and organic forms in the landscape.

The images I create have, over time, become abstract in nature, and yet are defined by an observation of natural and organic forms in the landscape. Abstraction is experiencing the ‘absence of subject' or the 'freedom from subject'. This eliminates the ‘security' of a recognisable form, thus causing the viewer to involve their own imagination in resolving the image, declining the 'challenge' or, indeed creating their own interpretation.

My works are intended to involve the viewer and I have tried to introduce an element of journey within them, with points of entry and departure. I try to reveal aesthetic appeal in unlikely places and ask the viewer to consider things otherwise ignored.  

I tend to work in 'threads', picking up on a whim, and consequently my work changes on a whim when  I feel either an end to a creative path, signalling a desire to move on, either forward or even back. I work as I feel at any time refusing to be constrained by the concept of work 'evolving'.
