Our view of the universe is governed by abstract notions of time; by the clock.
What is the relationship between our physical world, consciousness and time?
How to interpret art, beauty and 'reality' in this abstraction which is our existence?
These are studies, loosely examining these questions often as they relate to the ocean wave as symbol and that which lies below it.
These paintings are a mix of oil on canvas and mixed media on board, richly layered, often textured and stylistically influenced by my ongoing work in the field of architectural design.
