Thoughts

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 Thoughts

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 Thoughts

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 Thoughts

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 Thoughts

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 Thoughts

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 Thoughts

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 […]

Natural Beauty

May 21, 2015 Thoughts

When I first began drawing and painting, like most artists I was inspired and motivated by nature. I used to paint trees, landscapes and people. I soon came to realize that no matter how real I created my images, or how abstract I made them, I was still simply imitating life, rather than actually creating […]

Dancing With Paint

April 17, 2015 Thoughts

For me painting is a fluid experience that happens between me and paint. I get pulled in and lose myself in the process. I guess it could be compared to a dance, where I move in synchronicity with the paint as it moves and changes. Sometimes I feel like I’m leading but suddenly the rhythm […]

A Natural Event

February 12, 2015 Thoughts

In Harmony With The Paint When I start a painting, I don’t have a specific design or goal in mind. All of my paintings are based on an over all concept of creating art, rather than an individual goal. I merely create a natural event, based on my own principles of nature, science and art, […]
