Artist Statement

My paintings are meditative – both as process and as product. The concept of meditation is to slow things down, and that is my aim; to slow down the viewer’s eye, to share the experience that everyday objects become transfigured when looked at closely. The emphasis in this exhibition is not on the physicality of the objects themselves – there is no conscious intention of implying deeper symbolic meaning, but more of cultivating an awareness of the enigma that things exist. The visual world has always had a hypnotic effect on me, so it is only natural that an atmospheric kind of realism has eventually become my language of expression. An appreciation of the sustained power of observation is my mantra
