Recent work offers an interpretation of the in-between, using a dialogue between in control or out of control. Keeping faith in materiality. Poured enamel touches matt rolled acrylic. The eye moves across the divisions of colour, exploiting the visual problem of focusing simultaneously on converging tonally dazzling colour, whilst elongating and compressing the composition, allowing intuitive events to collide in a frontal approach.

The focus is on both an inside and outside space,pushing colour into luminous states of spatialisation and ambiguity.

Activation of memory, genetic, collective or individual are key to the paintings phenomenology.Shifts in scale both micro and macro allow a psychological and retinal stimuli for the spectator.

Each painting can be layered with acrylic, enamel, oil. Each area is often applied with a different brush or roller , or poured to allow chance. The physical and plastic qualities of the painting highlight the in- between and object quality of the work; the colour and detail drawing you in to the surface facture.

"The free-hand of the drawing, the layering of the painting, the contained release of the vertical bands of paint in contrast to the open field of disbursed paint, and most of all the exactness of the colour relationships, create a depth of field that is seen through the surface of the 'painting'. There is a sense that a shadow or ghost of some thing or object is in the painting, not lying behind, not pushing to find a figurative form, but more as a signifier for the act of the hand."
