2 pieces each 80cm square plus painted over wooden frames
And a third, older ‘vessels’ painting on the far wall in one of the images
And me in my painting hat, for scale!

Hi Liz, I don’t know what it is about your work, but I just love it!!
Hahaha, thanks very much, I don’t think we have to understand why we like what we like, but I’m glad that you do!
I love your still life work.
Thanks. I wonder, is it really still life? There is no molding of form, or light and shade, or really substantiality to the vessels. They are all rather insubstantial, and intentionally so! Sort if floating on the picture plane, in front of the abstract work behind, or scratched into the surface of the abstract work, or even both at once. I suppose I want the viewer to ask just those questions: is it abstract? Is it form? Is it a representational piece? What does it relate to? How is the vessel placed? And of course I don’t want there to be answers to those questions. And anyway, fundamentally its just PAINT!!
Lot’s of questions about ways of seeing. I was just going by the title but what I really love about your paintings are the layers of colour that go beyond form and lead you to wander into their depths.
Thanks! Sorry, yes, maybe I went on a bit there!! Lol!
