Painting is immeasurably frustrating and at the same time, life-enhancing.
Three new works : APS No31, Church and Garage... painted since this July, are part two dimensional and part three dimensional.
My interest in contrasting grid systems and technology with traditional methods of handling paint and colour has produced successful artworks that follow on from recently investigated issues such as the aesthetics of geometry, the beauty of decay and the transfiguration that follows on in time.
The works on display have all been created in the past three years, and were initiated by an international commission that required me to investigate the links between Mathematics and Art.
This developed further research into the origins of mathematical perspective and grid systems, drawing upon the instructions laid down by Piero della Francesca. This in turn made me look more closely at early Italian Renaissance imagery.
Seemingly tenuous at times, this link remains and in many ways I believe my work continues to reflect elements of beauty.
