Depot Gallery – Dank Street, Sydney
My work explores and manipulates new materials and exhibits developed experimental techniques, reflecting my relaxed emotional state.
I engage in the art making process on a subconscious level using my body and materials as a vehicle of expression creating a dialogue between layers of abstracted organic personal, sometimes figurative and cavernous forms suggestive of internal and intimate dioramas.
Working expressively, almost automatically in applying layers of line, form and gradated tone in gestures. I am an action painter, and my medium becomes an extension of my body echoing my movement and emotive state.
I aim to create depth through layers in my work, and build up each layer using a variety of media and experimental methods.
I endeavour to give each line and mark vibrancy, energy, motion, mystery and emotion that the viewer can experience.
I am intrigued by the complexity, hidden undercurrents and agendas involved in relationships. I have has expanded and developed this concept which informs an intimate visual language of organic tone, shape and line. These elements generate a personal response of emotions that are expressed within my work.
“As if diving beneath the surface (dreaming of what cannot be seen).”
