"These works explore the strength, energy and connections between or within beings, using the bull as inference to these things. The bull and cow, with symbolic references to power, determination, physical strength, stability and confidence, are central to the themes of these paintings.

"My approach to painting combines representation with abstraction. The representational image is a starting point that has some meaning or connection to me. I allow the painting to evolve with energy, color, composition and marks. It’s important to me to have the painting work as a painted image. Color juxtaposition, mixing wet on wet, layering, scraping – these are all part of working the paint until I come to a point where I feel it’s succeeding in making relationships within the painting and between the viewer and the painting. The representational image often changes shape or color as I let invention take its course. Spontaneous marks and manipulation of the paint are important in creating energy and allowing me to invite invention. I’ve been working on simplifying images and flattening so that the representational image doesn’t dominate the work and more importance lies in the process of painting. The representation is important in giving reference to things we know and infer from those objects, but I don’t want the painting to become static because of them. A large influence on my work are the abstract representational works of Richard Diebenkorn, the gestural abstractions of Willem de Kooning and the abstract works of Philip Guston."
