I find beauty in buildings and in abandoned and derelict manmade structures; I am drawn to grids, intersecting lines and the shapes formed by the gaps.
In my paintings I explore the depiction of light and how it behaves on the surfaces it illuminates. Essential to human life and wellbeing, light affects the way we perceive our environment.
Using as a starting point my photographs of modern architectural structures which reflect the sky and their immediate surroundings, I look at shape, colour and composition to convey the patterns of light I observe. I paint on canvas using layered metallic and matt acrylic paints to reflect or absorb light.
