About the Work

Paintings 2:

The Covid lockdown created many restrictions, but for an artist, restriction is good. It clarifies direction.

These paintings have muted, parallel-ish elements, but no colour is repeated, reducing movement across the work.

Each element is painted ‘flat’ - without the illusion of painterly rendering, but with just enough brush marks to show the paint is applied by hand. The result is anti ‘artistic’ with a feeling that anyone could do it.

These paintings deal with some familiar themes of lockdown: reduced movement, reduced influence, reduced illusion, reduced expression, stop and start, overload, chaos and claustrophobia.
