2018

The measure of a disorder of a system strategically defines my current art practice. My work is essentially a dialogue about the language of paint; working with colour and gesture, creating a controlled internal order on the canvas surface; when colour and touch are aligned the work attempts a dialogue with the viewer, an utterance on the nature of identity.

“… One day I would cross a threshold into an enormous park, an endless and beautiful park; in this park one ingenious invention would succeed another. Plants and music would follow in lovely mathematical alternation, delightful to the ear and answering to the utmost notions of delicacy; but this park was not there to be used, or wandered about in, because it consisted of a thousand and one small and miniscule square and rectangular and circular islets, pieces of lawn, each of them so individual that I would be unable to leave the one on which I was standing. In each case, there is a breadth and depth of water that prevents one from hopping from one island to another in my imagining. On the piece of grass which one has reached, how is a mystery, on which one has woken up, and where one is compelled to stay, one would finally perish of hunger and thirst. One’s longing to be able to walk through the whole park is finally deadly.” (Thomas Bernhard, Frost, trans. Michael Hofmann, Random House, 2008.)

 … then she returns to her paintings with this in tow. We must scratch, we must scrape beneath the painting, to see what these paintings show.

….Forms are humbling, like old friars or nuns, whipped across the canvas in a quiet Baconesque spirit. The titles of the works are often plays on words, as are the paintings themselves, a play on what we see. An eye is buried at the core of the work titled Keeper. What Remains to be asked  leaves the question hanging in the air. …
