Paintings are visual poems - light and colour shine from people, places and things. In a figurative painting it is all there - life and the marks it makes. A painting is a simple thing, singular only to itself - and yet it can be so special; ask any child.

Every artist dreams and struggles to access higher dimensions, and to transpose his experience onto the canvas - and so to Abstract painting. Most of us do not move beyond the confines of our lives - and that's plenty. However we like to know of these places - and experience them via the hand of the artist. The human experience is, after all is said and done, a spiritual one.
