My works are paintings before they are pictures and sometimes they are not pictures at all. Their beginnings lie in the visual world and my reactions to it but once I begin the work is more a emotional response than any attempt to produce something pictorial. Of course the original reference may remain evident in the finished work but it is the paint and the visual impact of its application that matters most. Paint surfaces can be so enormously varied in the multiplicity of hues, tones and brilliance that even the slightest change in either can alter the response one gets. This fascinates me – I guess it always has.
