Painting is immeasurably frustrating and at the same time immeasurably life-enhancing.
I prefer trying to reflect beauty in my paintings.
Recently, my interest in contrasting grid systems and technology with traditional methods of handling paint and colour has produced successful artworks that follow on from some of the issues mentioned below.
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 led me to look more closely at early Italian Renaissance imagery, and this is also reflected in recent works.
