Latest paintings: Take Flow

Exploring the dynamic between surface design on 3D ceramics. Transposing these in to painting; working up layers, playing with scale. Sometimes the expressive gesture takes presidency at others these marks are suggested at. Korean and Japanese ceramic ware, with their simple forms and elegant glaze brush work is the stimulus for this series. Exhibitions visited include Fitzwilliam Museum, V &A and St Ives Tate and a small book and print gallery showing studies from Bernard Leach sketchbooks and the contemporary ceramic artists Matthew Blakely and Sam Hall . img_2984.jpg
