Narrative Statement regarding my abstract painting practice

I live in an age where compelling information is ingrained in life and has become part of my observation where circumstances demand a response.  These opportunities, whether physical or mental, influence and modify my view on reality. 

I assimilate the idea of abstraction from an intellectual place.  The simplification and the complexity is not about the subject  it’s about the whole range of history of emotions that come from such places that are raw, intense and open, and still emergent the subject matter registered in my core and resonated so much it had to be expressed on canvas. 

“Art is a matter strictly of experience, not of principles, and what counts first and last in art is quality; all other things are secondary”.  Art and Culture Clement Greenberg

I am a multi-media visual artist, born in northern rural England, who now resides in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada.
