Rouge et bleu tournant - 2010 - acrylique sur toile 92x92

Since the 1970's I have focused on geometric abstraction.
My paintings are created from a variety of sources and are
produced through organisation, choice, trial and experimentation
using simple systems of construction.

I work in acrylics on canvas using flat colour within a
minimalist square or rectangular format.
During research and production, chance plays a part and
often new areas of investigation lead to the next series.

The dynamics involved in the paintings reveal opposition and
interplay between the vertical, horizontal and diagonal elements;
based on what feels right to the eye and not just on exact
mathematical theories of proportion or ideal ratios.
