12 May – 6 June 2018
Opening 6pm Thursday 17 May
My body of work in ‘City Garden’ 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.
As well as reflecting the environment in which I work, the title ‘City Garden’ arises from the process of the paintings, which both grow and are built, emerging from a combination of planning and efflorescence.
