Early Blossom - hand made acrylic on canvas 149x149cm - $8,000

Reaching for the camera, I began to shoot the images out of focus to exaggerate
once again what I saw as being really unusual.
Eighteen months later I began my attempts to describe this quirky visual effect,
it was necessary to radically alter my painting method to employ finger painting,
air brush and spattering in order to achieve the desired effect I was chasing.
I fancy the latest suite of paintings may well be the signature to a new series of work... Soft Edge”.


Poppy - hand made acrylic on canvas - 190x110cm - $7,500

There appeared a fantastic arrangement of blended colour and unusual shapes that did not
exhibit a definite edge, that most art school students, myself included,
had struggled to capture in earnest during their art school drawing classes and
here I was suddenly rejoicing that there were no edges.
Immediately I recognised that I was crossing a visual path that I was
keen to make much more of rather than surrendering the image as a passing glance
.
