biography

My work looks at the interplay between organic form and mathematical or geometric form and language. I am introducing the idea that geometry and pattern can be metaphors for the visual world and one’s experience of it. I see Galileo’s remark that ‘The book (of nature) is written in the mathematical language…’ as a true statement, offering endless possibilities of explanation in visual terms.
I have used Islamic pattern particularly to explore these ideas of metaphor and correspondence.
I am interested that from the simplest geometry (circles, squares and triangles) a multitude of complex worlds can mutate. These magical, complex systems are reflected and replicated in hedgerows or winter branches. Geometry and pattern is also at play with other painting traditions within each painting. The use of pattern introduces a contemplative aspect – a sense of endlessness. The forms which arise are untethered to any cultural aspect and are free to become useful components in a painting.
My recent paintings and collages have all developed through studies made of the garden and local landscape.
