New Work

Just finished hanging my show at the Window Art Gallery in Kingston. There is 29 pieces in the show from Aug 1st – 19th. Reception Aug 12th from 2-4. Thank-you Marsha Gormley for all your help and patience!  

Two of my pieces were accepted into a 2018 jury show at the Kingston School of Art. I’m proud to announce my painting “Essence of Pearl” received honourable mention in the show.   

June 29 ~ July 29 2018 Reception July 7 2:00 ~ 5:00 pm At the Window Art Gallery 647a Princess Street Kingston ON I am pleased to announce that the 2 pieces I entered in this jury art show and sale were accepted. Looking forward to meeting everyone at the reception July 7th.

There is some controversy over whether or not “Paint Pouring” is considered an art form, or simply a technique.  I think it is just a way to get paint onto the surface. It’s more important what happens to the paint while it’s on the surface than how it’s applied.  Painting is all about controlling the […]

Everything is Connected

February 15, 2018 New Work

Energy & Life Everything in the universe is connected, from each atom, molecule, cell, to every organic life form, from the universe, to the entire galaxy. We are all driven by the same energy. My goal, as a painter, is to use that energy to create. I don’t use a brush, I use force to […]

My Technique

February 9, 2018 New Work

Painting in a purely natural way My goal, as a painter, is to use that energy to create. I don’t use a brush, I use force to control the paint. Chemical interactions, forced air, heat, gravity and vibration. I want to use the same forces that created all life to paint.  

Synthesis

September 1, 2017 New Work

Using chemistry and energy to create I’ve titled my new series “Synthesis” which literally means “The production of chemical compounds by reaction from similar materials”. I think this describes this series perfectly. It is the result of combining various paints and acyclic bases together to create a unique and exciting visual reaction. The connection between […]

Organic Design

February 25, 2017 New Work

Shaping My Paint I never plan the end result of a painting, except for choosing the colours. Once I start, the painting begins to take on a shape on it’s own: although there is an element of design that goes into the painting as it progresses and grows into it’s own form. The design choices […]

Terraform

October 21, 2015 New Work

New Technique Terraforming is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying a planets atmosphere, temperature, surface, topography or ecology to be similar to the environment of Earth. This seemed like the perfect title to describe my new series since it relates to my painting process. With this series I’ve started using different types of thick acrylic […]

Evolution

June 6, 2015 New Work

New Series This is the first painting in a new series I call Evolution. I believe the word “organic” is the best word to describe my style of painting, as it relates to all living things derived from plants or animals. Coincidently acrylic and other paints, are produced with organic polymers and have similar properties […]
