THE METAL SERIES
These landscapes are created from pieces of images seen and pieces of those imagined. They are also strongly about the physical process of painting, the adding, the removing, the instinctive and the accidental. Within each piece there is an element of chance, a rediscovering of lost marks and gestures to produce familiar forms, which may not be apparent a second time.
In this land horizons and foregrounds are vast and unstable, it is unnerving and contradictory. The conventional canvas was replaced with metal and marks made with a variety of paints, as well as vinegar and bleach to create rust.
