Artist Statement

I am a facilitator, the means through which the work gains purchase in the world. In the absence of a narrative, a meditative quality emerges offering visual experiences that can be both nourishing and contemplative. The subsequent ‘encounter’ is the most important component. Consequently, this activity has one purpose, to take us to another place, all other considerations are secondary.

The work continually evolves, it carries me, it knows far more than I do.

b. 1956. Lives and works in Lincoln, UK


About the work

The work is made by using a high-density pigment which is applied to a 100% cotton fibre membrane. By employing conventional masking methods and a variety of ‘pressure dispersal techniques’ – which have evolved over extensive periods of experimentation – the unique surface evolves as the dispersal flow is disturbed and randomised by a form of ‘particle interference’. The finished membrane is then mounted and then coated with several applications of archival, water-clear, acid-free, matt varnish.
