Tales of Two Houses
Not remembering why I chose to make paintings depicting two houses, I ended up with about 400 painted cards and 400 works on paper. The idea of “two” seemed enough to establish a narrative, a starting point for putting paint on a surface and giving the brush directions to move.
Becoming more interested in painterly issues, speed and porosity, I moved to a larger scale and a different materiality; stretched canvas and acrylic paint. This opened up different attitudes to giving form and to responding. I liked the sound of the brush
These are abstract paintings.
