As I write, the uncertainty surrounding Brexit continues. Like many people, I am finding it hard to digest, to understand what means what and what I should believe. There is no stake in the ground as the political surface we stand on feels shaky and kind of like quicksand. I get the feeling that this constantly shifting paradigm is going to be the way forward.
My current painting efforts attempt to capture this. I’m not trying to be deliberately political. It is more of a reflection of a state of mind. Entities move back and forth. Brush marks suggest variations but no sooner appear than fade away. Twisting, swirling, falling, fading. The more you peer, the more you see and it’s impossible to unpick the ends. These uncertainties are set against much more definite shapes and marks that make their statement and display an energy.
