Artist statement

These low reliefs, made from two squares of card interlocked with no additions is part of the discipline of  the process. The two pieces submerge each other, the one appearing out of the other. They are not paintings in the accepted sense, they are constructions with paint, the colours serve the structure. I choose the first colour that comes to mind and follow. I have no agenda. They are sometimes in colours no one else would use, I don’t want to paint someone else’s picture. They come about as a consequence of my concerns, a belief in an underlying structure to life and a lot of chance occurrences. The chance illustrated by colour and marks, everything cut up by the day to day, a chance remark, a memorable moment, a depressing occurrence or a smile to remember. Patterns of growth, the fit of things, the classical in the romantic. The works are essentially deconstructions of real events, they are objects in the way anything man-made might be.
