My recent painting has returned to the familiar ground of abstraction. After a break in early Autumn 2019 I found myself gravitating to sketchbooks and initiating imagery. It was something that I needed to get out of my creative system. The results
felt pictorial and illustrative. I soon found myself gravitating back to the need for abstract narratives. I needed to not be in control again and allow the canvas to know what it knows and I follow. A more mysterious set of work ensued after that. There is
a feeling of consolidation between total abstraction and conscious imagery. I think this will continue into the new decade...in fact I know it will.
This has been a small breakthrough for me in seeing where my creative future lies. To
know that being the messenger rather than initiator visually makes more sense to me now. To not always understand what is going on within the canvas but allowing it to be as it is has become a new focus of my work going into 2020. This evolution contines into
a new year and a new decade....watch this space for new development.
