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.

Technical Another influence has been Laura Owens whose work has, “Qualities that seem initially incompatible and in opposition with each other quickly achieve a rightness that oscillates somewhere between the eye and the mind” whilst also using “an informed, unpredictable and eclectic attitude towards creating a picture”. (D Rolph, Laura Owens, Camden Arts Centre, London, 2006). “Her paintings are other worlds that operate out of time and context” in which, she creates distinctive and layered surfaces, oscillating between representation and abstraction.” (Ibid). Owens' work uses motifs of an atmospheric landscape as does my own, but while she uses and positions her representational figures, the physical practice of my work consists of the placement of marks to create a system of semiotics, as Dexter (2005) might say, “perceptually present but conceptually absent”.
