Always near to the he/art of Creation,

but never close enough, yet....

The human mind treats smaller paintings as if it is looking AT an object or a thing such as a table or chair ,
 but larger works are experienced (like installations) as if one  is part of them and participate in them.
Now that you know this please do not treat these images as if they
 are just more objects or things you look AT,
but experience and participate in them.


How to look at my , or any, work of art -


from ART STUFF November, 2011

1. The Formal Framework - Visual analysis - Technique - Style - Symbolism and metaphor.

2. The Personal Framework - Reflects the artists life - Links to other aspects which may relate to the artists life.

3. The Cultural Framework - The influences of time and place - Connections to contexts and cultural purposes.

4. The Contemporary Framework - Exploring contemporary issues

The painter battles with and combats space

(the space of the support s/he is working on) -

As I posted before:

the painter combats space. Our battles consist of trying to structure, re-structure and transform the space of the paper, canvas, wall etc we work on.

The musician and composer deal with time, and structuring and transforming it.

Films, videos, novels, poems deal with both time and space.
The traditional masters and figurative or representational painters employed ILLUSIONS (of space, light, perspectives and representing objects such as people, houses, flowe
rs, animals , landscapes, still lives etc) to battle with space. the space of the support, paper, canvas etc.
