New Work - 2019

In 2019, I continued to advance my weave concept, moving away from the seamless cut-and-paste grids which were proving too labour intensive. My newest pieces are acrylic paint on strips of paper, woven into a finished pieces mounted on birch plywood. I continue to use the iPad throughout my planning process. The studio provides an ideal environment where I can concentrate on the intricacies of interpreting my environment, puzzling through formulaic composition, combining complex rhythms with the fractured intimacy of venetian blinds. I am inspired by the world around me, landscapes both natural and man-made, and the ongoing fragmentation of all aspects of life.
