These Rough Trade posts on my recent work were originally written for Henri Art Magazine. I was doing a series of articles on painting and the challenges it faces in the 21st Century. Since I haven’t been updating my page here I thought I’d begin with a new look and these two posts. Basically they discuss my thinking about my work, about painting, specifically, and about vision. I’m very direct about what I’m trying to accomplish with my work, and how I’m going about it. I hope I’ve given you something to think about, but more importantly, I’m also giving you something to look at, to see in a different way. As time goes on I will be adding new work, some with explanation, some without. I’ll also post some of my older work as well, so that you can see where I’ve been and how I’ve come to these particular paintings. I expect this page to become a kind of studio diary, and a way to keep up with what’s going on with my visual processes. So, I hope you enjoy the new look, the newish work and the upcoming postings.
