From the Craig Gallery's website:
Artist statement: My paintings investigate the agency of colour through a vibrant, messy and precarious sensibility. These works are suggestive landscapes, investigating the inner exploration of indexical mark making, working with a formal and vital approach, I have been influenced by modes of expressionism, experimenting with its potential. The shapes and contours implies a playfulness, exuberance, and a sense of effervescence or froth which forms in-between the push//pull of tides. By breaking down the impression of the gestures, leaving it raw and undefined I hope to reveal something transparent about the process of painting and color.
