ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is celebrating the material I use and neglected areas which I am preoccupied with.I work intuitively by letting the images develop. I am interested in adventure,the journey on which the work is giong to take me. My interest is in the subconscious. I am interested in how I form the images without an outlined preconception. Primarily it is playing, it is an ongoing adventure into the unknown,always to do with nature, basicaly celebrating neglected areas.
Subconsciously I am linked to the rocks of my childhood when I observed the sedimentation and was fascinated with the visibility of the geological strata. From my childhood I am linked to the sea and rocks. I think that it comes out in the pigment I use which is terracotta, in itself evocative of rich bauxite red earth, itself associative with the colour of flesh. In my work I am trying to organise the disorder which is around me,but in the end the work imposes itself.
