Layers of figurative representation of a space combined with areas of pure gestural abstraction. The scale of this canvas is such that even though there is an obvious perspective and references to architectural city structures, when you are close to it all you see is the abstract movement of paint and ink. Wet into wet flowing strokes juxtaposed by impasto textures and marks. Travelling across the painterly surface mind starts to wander. Those steps with pealing paint on Paros where we waited for my sandals to be finished and watched the shoemakers confident hands cutting the leather; the colonnade in Paris and dancing with umbrellas; the ancient ruins in Chirali with those incredibly peaceful sunrises announced by cockerels.
The memories superimposed over the brushstrokes. I have a terrible memory so I don’t paint from memory, i paint from the loss of it and the abstraction of the image is what allows me to relive the precious little moments. If my work does that for anyone else I am happy.
