"My painting process is often an intuitive one, as I start with a concept and let the materials complete the piece. These bold marks, represent the idea of addition and subtraction. It appears as if something has been dropped onto the canvas, but only the evidence remains. I want the viewer to get lost in the textures and colours as their eye circles the work. Splat Series No. 1 is the first of 3 and my hope is that the viewer enjoys the process of looking, just as much as I enjoyed creating it."
