BYZANTIUM: 21 WINDMILLS, Acrylic on 4 x panels, total 244 x 122cm.
My current practice is Hardedge Geometric Abstraction. Initially my source of inspiration is Ancient Pattern. I work sequentially through many permeations in work journals developing ideas, until I decide which options might lead to finished pieces, and these will usually then be part of a series.
Often, as in the case of “21 WINDMILLS”, I make Maquette play pieces which can be exhibited alongside the installations, inviting participation and exploration of the patterns. These demonstrate that all my patterns can be juxtaposed and reconfigured in the finished works, often to react with the architectural space and setting accommodating them.
