This is a selection of current and experimental work from a week in the studio both of drawings and paintings. I tend to work in series of painting which is always underpinned by my drawing practise and photographic research also seen here which is invaluable in solving problems for experiments and inspiration, particularly in the initial stages of new work. These are exploring a time of contemplation inevitable after working on an intense series 1-5 of paintings including 25 paintings each. They follow a thread of continuous interest in REVERIE as well as other smaller themed folios. I purposely try to avoid any prejudging in any sense of what is to come in its execution, as the mark remains a conduit and manifestation, repetatively and rhythmically expressed, through colour and tone in a range of materials and scale.
