20120219: The Carnival Shadow

You and the Carnival Shadow 2012

I don't set out to make a painting with a palette knife, but my view is the materials  tools chosen should relate to how you  conceive the image and the attitude with which you work through form in imagined space.

I have always tended to see the human figure as wrested from something, carved out of a mass of possibility, chance and uncertainty.
