These paintings are a direct conversation with Kandinsky and his colour studies from the early 1900's. I seem to be a bit of a colour hedonist. Having worked with glass I couldn't transition straight to canvas so I introduced Plexiglas attached to the canvas with a spacer separating the two surfaces. The viewer is also subtly revealed in the Plexiglas and becomes part of the work through looking.

The circular and elliptical rings evoke macro and micro familiarities for me. On the grand scale they can be read as big bang or galactic paintings. Growing smaller in scale they resemble topographical surveys and smaller still, they are reminiscent of neurological imagery that shows the active areas of the brain.

For me colour and energy are inextricably connected.
