Over the past 10 years, I have built up a forest of symbols - my own alphabet of awkward scrawls that spawn off each other. When I create a work I retain only forms that are appropriate. This combined with the treatment of space and master lines (scratched into wet paint with sticks) result in a desired unity of composition. Primary colours are added on top of the impasto and movement is created by a variation in the dimension of forms in relation to other elements. My work starts out with a line (origination) and ends with a black line defining the pools of colour.
