New Work - 2018

In January 2018, I was excited to lease a space in William Clark Studios with beautiful north-east light. This gives me the opportunity to expand the weave concept I had taken with my iPad for the last two years. Using acrylic on paper, a number of small panels are cut and arranged by formula into seamless new works. I am experimenting with the interplay of formulaic composition with the serendipity of where the painted pieces intersect.

I continue to be inspired by the world around me: landscapes both natural and man-made, the puzzle of creating tiling patterns based on the rhythms in my favourite music, and the fearless colour we experienced on our trip to India in 2017. Please enjoy!
