About The Paintings.

Freedom of thought is essential in our day to day lives for us to maintain a healthy mental balance. To refuse to stick to social norms or turn away from what is expected of you can be romanticised as being rebellious, but for everyone it is an essential part in any internal awakening (be it intellectual or otherwise) and a development of individuality, which at times can be much needed to stave off the boredom of repetition.
 

Repetition of pattern is similar to the rhythm of language where dialogue will help you travel through a commutative story line. The visual elements aid your eye as it travels over the marked surface retaining its information providing an emotive response.
 

This particular style of painting is a suitable and effective way to express train of thought at whatever speed or time it takes to complete the action of mark making. If I think of something at the time I am painting, I will express that using the tools I have. It could be read as appearing abstract or vivid or even unassuming at times but after having expressed that current thought I would naturally move on to something else and include that until the painting would appear complete in its purpose to give off an emotive reaction.
 

This philosophy will be applied as I try out different tools or materials, new ideas form and the shape, size or texture of the area will determine the final outcome where every painting becomes an individual result of constant evolution of thought.

I put paint and rolls of paper out on the floor and left it for three weeks. Anyone who came over was invited to add what they wanted to it. In the three weeks it was down fourteen people had contributed to it, some of whom didn't think they could paint, but all were delighted how it turned out.
