  • Truth, as a subject in the arts, is an ever present but what allows one to define truth more accurately is its boundaries, or its parameters. Much like the painted surface, paints’ relationship to its boundary or its perimeter allows the viewer into a dialogue between the painting and its object. It is this painted surface, in relation to its object, which is of interest to me. I am investigating what happens, through the reception of the work by the viewer, to the elements that correspond to, or interfere with this surface as it is interrogated I do this by dismantling the surface, penetrating the surface from within and without as well as adding objects to the surface plain and expanding the painted surface beyond its original conception. The working of the painted surface itself is also crucial to my investigations, these improvisatory responses to the paintings object parameters are indebted to colour, the mark making process and the harmony and dissonance of a works overall composition.
