My work is the study of form; I relentlessly try to understand its deep complexity. Recently my practice has focused on space and structure, how an object physically exists within a space. I am trying to paint the truth as I see it, towards a purer design. I do not try to paint a sphere, for example, through representation; instead I begin to understand and to paint its form of roundness. Consequently this is where originality will occur. When I am confronted with something alien within my work, I know I have done something right!
