  • I see abstract art as having almost limitless possibilities -and my plan is to explore these possibilities as thoroughly as possible. While it is usual for most artists to find a style and then refine it through variations- i hope to reference, or create as many abstract styles as possible-in order to create a strong coherent range. To me this has something to do with the essence of abstraction- to distill essences as the basis for imagery- and to experiment with these essential qualities in different combinations; the results can lead down different paths, and one of my challenges is integrating these paths wherever possible. In time, through experience along these lines, I hope to invent much new imagery and expand upon my ideas. Ideas are very important to me. Once i establish an idea in a painting, i try to move forward and build on this idea- perhaps adding more ideas - or shifting along dimensional lines. This allows my painting to evolve organically and spontaneously. I prefer this, rather than following a plan from beginning to end.
