First and foremost I am a Figurative Painter. My default is to include a human figure of some form or another in my Art, it just seems natural. Abstraction has gradually become part of the mix as I have become more comfortable making decisions based on my ability. Initially adding texture and leaving unfinished areas, was more to do with presentation and the aesthetics of a piece. This helped to create a mood and emotion in a painting but over time it has evolved into a means to include a more diverse, less linear narrative to my work.
Figure Painting & Abstract Realism
Abstract Realism allows me to present the relatable human qualities of the subject juxtaposed against a contextual dreamlike backdrop of broken and disjointed imagery,
Realistic Figurative Painting & Creativity
Creativity only exists within boundaries and although it sounds counter-intuitive to try to define yourself, especially as an Artist, the perception of being free to do anything is not as liberating as pushing the boundaries of your constraints. Abstract Figurative Realism is how I choose to describe my current work because it helps me to concentrate and focus on a subject while my imagination attempts to distract me with alternative and infinite possibilities
