Statement: I live and work in West Sussex, and it is the town and landscapes of this county that makes up much of my work.
Essentially, I paint what attracts my attention. The objects that attract my eye are painted in greater detail. The peripheral landscape is then described with more gestural mark making, often just capturing movement and light. And, with my new work, objects that don’t interest me are just painted out.
I guess I have selective vision... my eyes seek out curves and straight lines that give even an urban landscape beauty to me. And it is this selective vision that I am trying to express in my new paintings by painting (with oil) on top of photocopies of my own photographs of East Grinstead.
