I am very excited to be showing 6 paintings at a Palm Beach, Florida Art Fair with Mark Borghi Fine Art
These photos show 6 of my works on two walls, installation in progress yesterday. Also in the lower image I think I can identify a painting by Larry Poons and one by Max Ernst

I haven’t quite known how to share my recent works and talk about them here up till now. I’m having a bit of ‘breakdown’ perhaps. Not an illness. Just in painting terms. I am experimenting with pouring paint. Over older dry paintings. It’s hard to explain why. Or what it means. I hope this aggressive, bold use of strong colour, with forms forming themselves, directed by gravity and manipulated by the tilt of the canvas or a blot with tissue, will lead somewhere. In the meantime maybe they can say something for themselves.
On Facebook a friend commented that I am bringing graffiti and vandalism into the studio. Yes! I think the friend is right. Sometimes we need to force a change. To fight off the status quo.
