When I start to paint I don’t think of the piece as an image. I start through action, fighting against the edge towards the centre. I have a compulsion to see beyond the frame – figure and ground are equal. By layering movement through the physicality of paint, a space forms. The frame becomes a fixer or locus for a particular perspective. Abstraction is for me a language of reality, which acts on a subatomic level, not fixed through a namable form but one that goes beneath what we see. The image is complete when the image floats and becomes unfixed.
