"I paint about returning,
returning as an observer to places imprinted within
my memory. These places were discovered when walking
on my own and were charged with some profound
meaning that escaped definition.
In the rendering of my work certain structures
integral to the scene are left as painted outlines,
the primed ground within these remaining exposed.
The rest of the surface is painted as an illusion
around these ghostly cut-outs by driping and almost
weaving with the viscose impasto paint. The outlined
structures are to me like time machines permanently
wavering between arriving or departing."
