Statement ( Figurative work ):  I am concerned with the disciplines involved in painting - the subtleties of colour and form, the application of the brushstroke - to manipulate paint into creating a three dimensional image on a flat surface through the arrangement of light and shade. I have attempted to focus on the delicacy of the surface of skin by stripping away all the aspects of the composition  and background that distracts the eye from the skin`s texture.  I encourage the viewer to look at the beauty and subtlety of the paint depicting skin - to appreciate the surface of the canvas transformed into a solid form of the human figure. I usually  concentrate on a single figure in an ambiguous background for the beautiful simplicity of the visual effect and an immediate response and dialogue with the subject.
