In my recent paintings the geometric forms still relate to the edges and to the crossbars of the canvas but have opened out. The triangles and squares have some affinity to the nets of solids but on a flat plane. Textures and colours form edges and planes and pastel, oil, graphite and acrylic, both work against each other and bleed into each other.
There is a play between transparent and opaque layers, solid and floating forms, matt and shiny surfaces and bright colours. This becomes more apparent as the viewer shifts their gaze, some forms are visible and some disappear. Light is a very important factor.
