A series of paintings with a strong call and response element. This series included an approach similar to musicians jamming – playing off the notes of each other, or improv dance - with each point of physical contact providing the starting point for the next movement. The paintings are based on my response to a mark made in wax as an expression of energy, a story unfolding as I build up layers of wax. Continually inspired by the natural world, images present themselves while I paint. I respond with a push and pull to completion, gesture and mark making representing a flow or force.
