Artist Statement

On String Paintings....

'String paintings come and go, sometimes I do lots of them, sometimes I have a break and don't do any for ages. I am on a break at the moment.

The string is used to define an edge and can be related to the picture or create a completely different picture over a background. I did a project on layering once and I have been obsessed ever since with layering up images using textures, using lines, using patterns. It doesn't matter how many layers I used or how complicated they get I always have to overlay them with some kind of structure to balance the image or make it make sense. The use of string helps me achieve this, especially when I want something definitive...'
