Biography from the Archives of askART

The following information, submitted April 2014, is from the artist.

Artists Statement
Respect for the two dimensions  of the picture plane are paramount and I attempt to tread the fine line between the figurative and abstract in order to attain this.

It is not easy to produce this result especially whilst using light and shade as an important subject in itself  in the construction of a painting.

I believe  that painters who achieve this may be creating a purer form of painting. Annish Kapoor and the late  Wiliam Gear have supported me in this.
