Gone series

‘Gone’ is a series of recent paintings and drawings exploring transient spaces, structures and surfaces; some previously occupied but now empty, with traces of lost forms or past activities; natural and artificial environments in flux, obscured or on the edge of collapse.

Ideas are expressed using a pared down, modest palette of materials and colour.  Methods of working involve deliberate actions such as the application of marks, tone and poured paint, and serendipity; allowing the materials to follow their own request. I like the idea of creating raw, simple pieces in an age of visual stimulation and information overload.
