I Got Rythm
Like many of my contemporaries I try to remain true to the two-dimensional surface of the work. I am not interested in trying to create an illusion of depth therefore, if I refrain from moving in or out from the canvas, then I have to move laterally around the surface. Paul Klee said “Drawing is the art of taking a line for a walk”. I like to lead the eye on a dance. In order to keep the dancer on the ballroom floor (analogous to the picture frame) my compositions make use of enclosed shapes like circles, figures of eight or labyrinthine spirals. By use of contrasting elements e.g., angles and curves the Rhythms may vary in tempo from a waltz to a quick step, fox trot or a tango.
Will you, won’t you, will you won’t you come and join the dance?
