The experience of color is unique for every person and reaches so deep within our memories and subconscious that it can transcend time and space. In the Pill series of paintings I am exploring the tension between the conscious and sub conscious by developing working strategies that use elements of chance. Some of the color choices and proportions are based on the role of a 12 sided die, a toss of a coin or slips of paper drawn at random out of a bag. The random choices liberate my work from the conscious mind, its choices and habits. It allows me to react to surprise and open my eyes to possibility. My hope is that my paintings will resonate with you as objects of beauty and as an invitation to explore your own unique experience of the infinite through the beauty of color.

As an artist I have always been acutely sensitive to my environment and physical space. My work is a personal response to and exploration of the forms, spaces, light and color that surround me every day. This was true growing up in the industrial north of England, and now in my adopted home of Los Angeles. I am fascinated by the power of color. How it can reach deep into the unconscious to affect emotions, transport us to another time or place, disrupt perceptions and change minds. My work is intended as a portal, a way to tap into the trans formative power of art through color.More About Artist
