Inspired by Derek Jarman’s book Chroma.
“A poetic, passionate and intensely personal exploration of colour written during the final year of Derek Jarman’s life.”
The paintings are a thought process; driven and reflective…
My process is organic, beginning the paintings with gestural brush marks, impulsive scrawling and graffiti. Layers are introduced in stages and the direction of the painting is informed and influenced by each previous mark and colour. They are suggestive in possibilities and provide some insight into the sensation experienced while creating the works.
