I like paintings that refuse to make a point. Instead they deliver a mystery, something to be unravelled with input from the viewer. They leave room for personal history to become a player, to ignite a thread that will take its own turns and outcomes and ultimately deliver an emotion and feeling that finds its own conclusion.
As I move further and further through my career, I am trying to distil the paintings down to the core elements, pointedly pushing the composition front and centre, to focus attention to the key areas to reinforce the experience.
