Using a mixed palette, my work shows the physical gesture in the way I scrape the paint in different directions, to create a textured piece which the audience can interpret in their own way. I am interested in the process of painting and how different colours are mixed together to create a ‘torn’ effect. I started to look at cityscapes from a bird’s eye point of view, as a starting point. I discovered Gerhard Richter during my studies at University and really grew to like his work. It wasn't just his work which I loved; it was the way he used the paint on a giant canvas, and a huge squeegee to create such amazing abstracts.
