Rainbow Connection

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I make objects that rely upon the precise manipulation of repitition,rythm and pace. I use simple tools and materials, building up layors by hand and eye.I tend torward a logical outlook where one decision gets the ball rolling and leads on to the next,incrementally. My fondness for clear crisp edges goes back to my original study of metal. Only later did I think myself a painter. I wish my works to be viewed slowly, revealing themselves sedately over time.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I think the activity of making art brings me joy and fully engages the mind,body and spirit in an harmonious whole. Simply put, I enjoy making things that did not exist before. It is an antidote to most other situations where I can feel at the mercy of events.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I would describe myself as a constructor of painted reliefs. These fall in the `nether region` between flat and three dimensional and have their own subtle quality.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

I did a B.A. in Metals in Farnham and an M.A. in Fine Art in Canterbury.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

These days I exhibit sporadically, mostly with H.A.C.S. However in the past I have shown work further afield including Ludlow,Worcester,Bath and Birmingham.
