This series was developed with frames & wooden supports that were collected over decades of salvaging general materials for art & studio.  Industrial & consumer stuff is cannibalised, cleaned, curated, filed (& yes hoarded) in a resource library that feeds the erratic experiment that is my life & work. 

After visiting art museums along Australias' east coast I was most inspired by the modernist painter Grace Crowley (1890-1979).  So using high quality primers and acrylic paint i took a deep dive into my unsuspecting subconscious as she seemed to have done during the middle of last century. 

The 1950s was the pre television era of what i would consider peak paint.  Artist using the medium were enjoying unprecedented aesthetic freedom - unshackled from realism by the earlier pioneers of expressionism and particularly the radical arc of Pablo Picassos' body of work. 

This visual improv was mirrored in the refined anarchy of the Jazz music scene by contemporaries such as Miles Davis. 

The shapescapes i have composed are colourfully uncomfortable scores that screech and flow like random dreams drifting in and out of coherence.  

I have decided to make these works accessible so each painting is available for NZ$900 - add $70 freight inside NZ and P.O.A for international delivery.
