"Pure abstract allows the use of the elements to raise the imagination and viewers vision to their 'own' experience. The use of forms, organic or otherwise, humanoid, plantoid, celloid, mechanical etc, composed of line, colour and space, can relate to our subconscious.

 

The use of line to create 'form' and 'no form', colour and line to promote movement, and blank space, and how it relates to "us" is my focus of vision in current work."
