“To sense the invisible and be able to create it, that is art.” Hans Hoffman
Abstract painting is the discovery of the self and the subconscious and provides an insight into an unseen world. I am an abstract expressionist / action painter. Painting non-objectively with no preconceived ideas most of the time is my approach to painting. The direction taken will emerge spontaneously as I paint. I do not make sketches or drawings. Most of my work reflects nature and wildlife.
Mainly, i work on the floor preferring that to an easel. This is liberating, as I am able to walk around the painting and work from all angles. The rhythm and motion of action painting is intriguing but it is important to understand space and balance and know when to stop. I consider my painting completed and harmonious when it makes sense to me.
