For a long time I’ve been frustrated by the limitations of the single panel. Novels can have many voices, and large musical forms, such as symphonies, can have a wide range of feeling, but abstract paintings tend to a single voice and a single feel. In this show there is a free-standing two sided piece and a four sided piece made of two panels that notch together to hold each other up on the floor. Since the viewer cannot see both sides of a panel at the same time they can only put the piece together in their memory, and for me this enables a greater range of expression – the sides can be very different from each other. I’ve taken the opportunity to broaden my practice, and add brushes, spray paint, wiping and drawn lines to my usual poured shapes. The other works in the show are painted stainless steel globes. Again, since we can’t see all sides of the sphere at once, the painting changes as we move around it, becoming many paintings. Two of the spheres have holes cut in them, so the inside is another surface to paint. In all these works there is a lot of wet into wet, meaning that I pour shapes into shapes before the first shape has set up. On a sphere this increases the difficulty enormously – and then the results are better too. There are also a couple of shaped wall works in the show – each one is made of three overlapping circles with a poured image.
