"Nature paints like a harlot" - Herman Melville

"The obvious thing to say is that colour speaks silently for itself in art, and that any attempt to speak on its behalf is bound to fail." - David Batchelor

Colour is light. Colour is nature. Colour is very important to my work. In this quasi-minimalist painting I use intense saturated colour combined with a poured paint passage to allude to a revision of mid-20th century narratives.

As in much of my work, the paradox of vital natural forces placed in tangent and integrated with human-centered design, poses questions as to what art means and what it can convey in the 21st century.
