Abstract Painting

12 Dec 2014

For many years I was encouraged by galleries to concentrate on my figurative work.  This meant that abstract painting took a back seat for many years.

I wanted to paint abstract but whenever I tried I would see a figure wanting to emerge.  Then a few years ago I painted some abstract paintings quite naturally and spontaneously and rediscovered its magic.

 

Over the past few years I have really enjoyed experimenting with abstract painting.  Some are gestural, some are lyrical and gentle and some I explore using blocks of colour.  With all my abstract paintings I am totally engaged.  It has opened up a whole new field of creative expression for me and I am loving immersing myself in the creative process with each new painting that I commence.

There are always surprises and always different solutions in resolving each painting.
