I love to pare things back to their essence, using subtle gradations of colour and an undefinable internal luminosity, to evoke and explore notions of time and space. The making is very process oriented involving the building up of a richness of colour through multiple layers of pigment. Across the centre is a horizontal line, which is soft at its edges so that it appears to hover between, rather than separating the two central bands of colour. The lack of compositional boundary implies something larger and more expansive, as if suggesting something more infinite.
