If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I am...
returning to painting after a long break playing chess, taking up themes I thought I had left behind 30 years ago, only to find that they are more pertinent and more interesting to me now than they ever were... and wondering where have I been?
About my artwork
My paintings explore abstract themes of identity and similarity, repetition and the impossibility of repetition, and the impossibility of repetition. I invent a formula for each painting and roughly follow the rules of the formula, setting up relationships between chance, accuracy, colour and structure. They can also be seen as organizations or systems.
Artists I like
'Old' masters from the early modern period: Seurat, Rouault, Matisse, Mondrian, Monet, Rodchenko. Late modern masters: Reinhardt, Newman, Rothko, Gottlieb. Recent modern and contemporary abstract painters: Sean Scully, Karin Davie, Bridget Riley, Mali Morris, Estelle Thompson, Xylor Jane, Philip Taaffe, Richard Aldrich, Dan Walsh, Stanley Whitney
Neuro-linguistic-programming (NLP), Organisational behaviour and art in organisations/work contexts. Reading and theory: Authors - Douglas Hofstadter, Slavoj Zizek. Music (especially Jazz at the moment) and dancing (ballroom, latin and sequence).
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
I like to visit the Lion and Lamb Gallery - lots of interesting paintings on view most of the time.
