My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.
Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.
210mm x 297 A4 glass clip frame, acrylic paint
Edition of 60 signed and numbered copies, each unique
The clip frame backing board is marked in pencil, mapping geometric shapes and proportions relational to its dimensions and the four slot apertures. Colours are emotiomaticaly selected and combined, in rhythm to the mantra internalised, and applied at the intersection of lines. The final composition grows from the weight of the glass and the gentle squeeze exerted by the frames clips, spreading and connecting colours between the two surfaces. Made to be displayed in transitional spaces, to remind the viewer to be fully present.
Note on viewing: Each painting is its own universe, select one. Breathe slowly and deeply whilst observing the painting. Gradually let your gaze go out of focus. Meditate on the centre of the painting, allowing its geometry to bring your mind to a state of balance.
Line Navigation Time Trial Challenge
invented for the Victoria and Albert Museum’s V&A Village Fete
Normally the easel holds the paper and the artist holds the pen. For the Line Navigation Time Trial Challenge it’s the other way round. The artist holds the paper, and an easel holds the pen (fixed horizontally at waist height).
For this challenge, two participants stand facing each other. One holds a board with a printed sheet on the reverse pressed up against the nib of the pen. The other gives directions as to how to move the board in order to draw a line through five circles printed on the page.
The aim is for the participants to draw a line that passes through the ten circles in the shortest time possible and compete for the honour of the top position on the leader board.
