Oil on cotton canvas

My work explores the space between two worlds; the push and pull of the foreground and the background. In between that push and pull is a space, a resting place that I am searching to create. I am playing with colour field and gestural abstract painting, which was popularized during the late 1940s and 1950s. Jean-Paul Riopelle’s and Mark Rothko’s use of the palette knife, and layering of colours are strong inspirations in my playing with paint. I use these techniques of layering to play with space; a space where a third-dimension within the canvas can live and imagination can run free.
