I work with a variety of materials from oil and acrylic paint on canvas to charcoal, pastels and collage. In between work on canvas I find collage a constant medium which is spontaneous and immediate. The process of adding, taking away, covering over and revealing lends a level of uncertainty and unpredictability which can be worked on endlessly or come to a quick conclusion as the image changes and develops.
A recent exhibition with June Finlayson and Prentice Smy titled ‘In Time’ looked at how aspects of time affect us all, physically, psychologically and environmentally. We say every picture tells a story and these stories are what make us human. They are about past, present and future, setting the context of our lives, our ancestry, the land, love, friendship, relationship, rituals, survival and community.
