Today, 4th May 2021, is Greenery day in Japan. Today I present you “Lushness” in situ. The gentle powdery green frames the movement of the varnishes, mingling with the inks. The result is organic: trees and plants were my inspiration, I associate the colour green with peaceful nature, tree contemplation and the need to re- […]

ANCHORAGE commented on

“The sense of distance conveyed in this work not only brings to mind the vastness of the place, but also one’s remoteness from it. Particularly after living such a restricted life this year, the urge is to stretch out, fly into that distance where another life is going on.” C.A. London

CADENCIA

Organic , pleasingly round abstract, where dry pigments mingle with flowing transparent varnish following the veins of the wood board. Acrylic on wood, inks, varnish and pigments. 60 cm diameter X 1 cm Reference No: 168

HUAYHUASH

I found a satellite photograph from this little known Peruvian Andes region: it inspired this abstract composition, of a glacial lake viewed from above. The natural environment remains unspoilt, the wild life to spot on the treks include condors, vizcacha and vicuna. All of this combined to paint a setting which can only be described […]

GALACTIC

From the “Galactic Series”, moons in all their splendour became a motive to explore the round shape and play with texture. This canvas is organic, striking and free flowing. Acrylic, inks, pigment, pastel and varnish on black canvas 102 cm W x 41 cm H x 4 cm D Reference No: 207

PINK MOON

From the “Galactic Series”, moons in all their splendour became a motive to explore the round shape and play with texture. This canvas is organic, striking and free flowing. Acrylic, inks, sand and varnish on canvas 101 cm W x 101 cm H x 4 cm D Reference No: 216

REEF

This is one of two paintings I found impossible to name. An Open Studio event was the perfect “test” for my visitors. “Untitled” was not an option, it became “REEF”. Acrylic, inks, varnish and pigment, brushed steel bar on deep edge canvas 101 cm W x 101 cm H x 4 cm D Reference No: 232

AZUCENA

This painting was drying slowly, as layers upon layers of acrylic and different varnishes were applied to the canvas. Late at night, a Cuban woman’s face starting to emerge, and transformed the artwork. The recent Cuban trip had cut deep into my emotions. Azucena means lily in Spanish, a beautiful name. Acrylic on canvas, inks […]

LUSHNESS

This abstract flowing canvas became the central piece of my solo exhibition in Mayfair in April 2017, representing guided spontaneity and a fresh palette of pigments for Spring. The gentle powdery tone of green frames the movement of the varnishes, mingling with the inks. The result is organic:trees and plants were my inspiration, and Pantone […]

CADENCIA 1

Organic , pleasingly round abstract, where dry pigments mingle with flowing transparent varnish following the veins of the wood board. Acrylic on wood, inks, varnish and pigments. 60 cm diameter X 1 cm  Reference No: 168

ERUPTION

This light palette of colours was chosen to elaborate an abstract and translucent haze: I worked horizontally with free flowing varnishes on the canvas, then dropping acrylic inks and reactive fluids to obtain an atmospheric composition. The viewer’s imagination can roam and escape. Volcanoes and their natural phenomena connect with my temperament and are the […]

PASION VOLCANICA

    From the “Volcanic Series”, this large explosive painting combines the force of passion and the softness of vapours. Texture is eye catching: sand and inks melt in the centre of the canvas over grains of sand, and the organic flow of lava dissolves to the edges. This creation is the expression of spontaneous […]

FUEGO

  Starting in front of a mat, black canvas added a dramatic dimension to this “Volcanic Series” painting. I had witnessed the regular eruptions of the Stromboli under the stars. One looks at a transparent veil of orange and red varnishes, then becomes drawn to the lava flows running with flames. This is a striking, […]

SHIRAZ

  Persian carpet motives abstracted on canvas: rich reds, sand grains, layers of gold and melting varnishes create a lustre for a very decorative painting. Acrylic, inks, sand and varnishes on deep edge canvas 60 cm W x 60 cm H x 4 cm D Reference No: 237  

TERRE VERTE

– Named after the beautiful fine powdery pigment from L.Cornelissen & Son famous artists material shop , the word fitted perfectly the silky textured composition of this abstract, flowing piece. Acrylic, inks, varnish on deep edge canvas 76 cm W x 50 cm H x 4 cm D Reference No: 229

JUG AND LILLIES

An early study, inspired by Sally Ann Fitter’s painting viewed at Earls Court antique art Fair in 2014. I transformed it into my own, creating textured petals for the aromatic lillies and a more vibrant palette. Acrylic on canvas, inspired by Sally Ann Fitter 76 cm W x 50 cm H x 2 cm D […]

VESUVIO

From the Volcanic Series: the iconic slopes and plumes of ash of the Vesuvio in the bay of Naples have always fascinated me. Since childhood, I have always felt a huge attraction for  the beauty of the geographical setting, the colours of the Mediterranean sea and the historical role this majestic volcano played in Italian […]
