All art is like life, there are always parallels. In my abstract painting, I am building up the layers; increasing the patchiness and density with scrubbed in glazes and the random chance of composition which I manipulate by knowledge and aesthetics and the excitement of colour. One is bypassing the intellect of ideas, the evolution of ideas, to meet the basic impulses and the conclusion that the finished painting is simplicity born from accumulated complexity. The end meets the beginning. The circle, Jung's most sacred of shapes. Then it is complete.
