Two contemporary practitioners' artistic researches have had some bearing on my own. Firstly, my work has been influenced by that of Tomma Abts, her holding and unfolding space and use of light from different sources. “There is a tense dialogue between the pictorial illusion of space in her paintings and the literal surface.” (Tom Morton, “Terminally New”, Frieze, No 97, March, 2006). In my work the illusive, emerging and disappearing boundaries and shapes which expose themselves are cut off and create margins which are the edges and borders separating the coloured areas from non-coloured spaces; some areas are left blank. A graphical interface is created by the formation of a sharp division between two or several types of patterns. The patterns encourage a recurrent theme to develop as they structurally evolve.
Equipment Pencil, water colour and ink on paper.
Technical The shading in light and dark takes a main aspect of a chiaroscuro impression which is used along with the empty spaces, shapes and forms. The structural motifs are the recurring shapes I draw which have the distinctive appearance of a chain of rhyming forms. There is an undecided element in using the perspective leading me to concentrate on how I can develop and use it as an instrument to invent new patterning. The various pronounced subtleties I produce are used to expose and express different inclinations, both perceptually within the human mind and in relation to the image, as Laura Owens did in her work; pictorial questions are used as a type of dialogue and instrument to evolve the details' expression as they develop through practice. My working method includes adding a series of layers as I decidedly alter the pictorial constructions in exploring exposed formations the oil paint can inhabit.
