Artist Statement

My latest body of work – enamel on plexiglass panel construction – deals with the ineluctability of change. All things, everywhere, is in flux. Change is constant and is inevitable.

The painterly surfaces of each panel are characterized by drippings, splashes, poured lines and shapes. Lines are gesturally formed and exude movement while the areas of colour are sinewy, having a life of its own. All these are reflected onto another nearby plexi glass surface offering new reflections, deflections, and shadows. Reacting to the passage of time along with daylight or particular light source, lines become elongated while others are foreshortened.  Shapes and shadows also stretch out or diminish. All intersect, all interact with each other, responding to the elements of time and light. Thus the clear property of the plexiglass is essential to this body of work.

The interplay, intermingling of all these lines and areas of colour along with the accompanying shadows speak of the relationship of all things, everywhere. The interconnectedness of all things that continually move is ever-evolving. This ongoing evolution is what the work refers.

The lines, the shadows, the areas of paint all interact with other lines, shadows, areas of colour of another panel which then interact with the lines, shadows and areas of colour reflected right onto the wall. All levels are in constant flux. This is especially evident on the off-set surfaces where the lines are reflected right onto the wall. These lines stretch at times, then, shrink, during other times. Shadows touch; then come apart. All are in motion, in movement, however minute.

This interplay, intermingling effect of these aesthetic elements allude to the interconnectedness of all things. All peoples. Suggestive of the notion that each encounter carries meaning and possesses a rippling effect that reverberates.
