In 2017, I decided to leave College where I had been a full-time member of the Art department for 22 years. I have been on an exciting personal journey which has led me to put on an exhibition of my work entitled, Stepping Out, so called as it depicts not only the predominant subject matter of the artwork, landscape and my ramblings around various parts of the countryside, but also the idea of leaving a community into what is pretty much new ground.
The artworks are responses to places I have been and there is a degree of reiteration of work as I seek to explore the composition and developing abstraction through the inclusion and exclusion of the contents within view. Selecting elements, physical objects, colours and surfaces, coupled with the linear ‘pathways’ that the eye can follow in and around a space, is fundamental to the process of producing the work. It doesn’t always work! But it nonetheless a journey.
