“I have been painting for more than forty years and over those years have built up a large body of work. I have almost always painted in an abstract style, indeed, abstract expressionist style to be accurate. I don’t paint in order to try and reproduce something from life but rather to express what is inside myself that can’t be expressed any other way.”
Paintings made during the year 2020 and 2021 whilst there was a worldwide pandemic taking place.
Formal Abstract Expressionism
A series of paintings I produced using abstract expressionism at its heart but using a formal abstract structure to contain it.
After a spell of not painting I decided it was time to pick things back up. Not having a specific idea what I wanted to paint I just started. It wasn’t until a friend pointed it out that I realised I was painting Mandalas.
These paintings aren’t strictly a series but rather a series of paintings that have one thing in common. My use of the hand print.
Although I mostly work in series occasionally paintings come about outside of a series.
