My recent work includes both large and small paintings, mostly presenting a fresh view of spiritual and psychological ideas, in an abstract way, to bring alive concepts to twenty-first century viewers.
Most of my recent paintings are to some extent a blank expanse of coloured space, that is, a meditative space, possibly enabling people to have spiritual experiences.
Having looked at historical treatments of religious and psychological subjects, this is a new way of looking at these ideas. I used acrylic or oil paint on chunky canvasses, unframed.
My work often includes large expanses of blank space in calming, peaceful colours, with a relaxing effect, sometimes with a one-sided semi-circle to one edge.
The works are mostly unique and quiet, with original designs, in a simple style, usually made from multiple layers of paint.
