Chez Coco 2017 acrylic on canvas 102×102cm

My body of work in ‘Flashes’ is something like an evolving visual language. The compositions often start with bursts of colour and paint, that at times relate to place. Forms develop and evolve within the layering of paint, through a process of revisions, reprisals, and counterattacks. I use the line of the horizon in all my paintings as a ‘stage’ for the paint – to mirror the rhythm of clouds, set against a collage of a memory of the urban landscape

The title ‘Flashes’ highlights a critical stage in the making of these paintings that builds with the painting and then triggers the action of the final flurry of mark-making. What triggers this is perhaps the element of risk, or the anticipation of chance
