Shifts of Emphasis

My paintings changed this year and the repercussions of that forced me to look at this strange phenomenon – change. My own experience of it was sudden, as if I’d been picked up and dropped into it. That’s not really true, though, as there had been signs last year but at the time I didn’t […]

Last summer I heard John McEnroe, the great tennis hero, being interviewed on TV; he was asked about being an art collector and he said that he loves paintings with movement – which was endearingly unsurprising! I love movement, it contributes to the dynamic of a painting, its brio, if that’s the term, and the […]

When I even say the word ‘project’ to myself I immediately have a sensation of gathering in.   It’s as strong as that, collecting all of myself together from where I’ve become scattered. Why?
