My work stems from a background in science and the experimental process. After studying the nature of colour, including wavelength and its relationship to depth perception, I continue to be fascinated by colour's many properties. Like the Colour Field Movement of the 1950s, I explore the visual impact of colour, stripping away all that is unnecessary. By making art that is essentially an abstraction of abstraction, I am left with an unadorned metaphysical aesthetic. This work is as immediate and as fully revealed as colour allows. It is uncluttered and free from the bombardment of information. It encourages the viewer to pause and reflect; it creates a mood and sets a tone. Subtle variations of colour and texture help maintain the simplicity and the aesthetics of minimalism, while creating depth and movement. The repetitive nature of life along with layers of understanding created by these repeated experiences, inform my work. Ripples and nodes are created and catch the residual colour of our emotions. Feelings pile upon feelings and leave traces often only apparent upon careful self-examination.
