Contemporary British Abstraction

So after 40…yes 40 years (I started at the tender age of 16 in 1975) as an infrequently practicing artist I find myself finally with a studio and time to paint so as of next Monday there no more excuses….

What will it look like? Well going by the last completed canvas above from May 2014 probably a bit cartoony,  a bit abstract, a bit colourful….somewhere along the fault line between Contemporary British Abstraction (see show on now in London poster below ) and a crazed version of Disney trapped in a hunting lodge…so think David Lynch and rabbits…paint…it’s all about the paint..stupid….

So her it is or there it was and now it is or almost now …or something….whir..dribble…splat..thunk….
