Rather than dwelling on the rather gloomy economy, the pandemic etc., these new paintings are bright and colourful and they create a bodily sense of the act of painting.

These works loosely allude to the abstract expressionists and the automatistes of the 20th century (who are among my personal art heroes). They may refer to elements of landscape and nature but without objective representation. They are an extension of a series of abstract work begun in 2012.
