ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM

Mel, Melanie Chalkley or I ... cannot stop imagining....From as young as I can remember, I always found myself entangled in a form of upside down, inside out and exceptionally backwards unreal reality. I found entertainment in making new brews from the most boring of what really was. The simple pencil creates 90% of everything. No computers are allowed any part of my drawings. Sometimes I turn my curious thoughts into poems, that I only place atop photographs that I have taken myself and have tinkered with.... or not (this is the only party the computer is invited too).

My work is intuitive with an aesthetic sensibility that is entirely my own. I use no visual aids in my creative process. Instead, my method draws on my personal insight of life from a deeper place where the image takes shape through inner guidance.

What takes shape is a series of contrasting themes from force to subtlety and softness; conflict and peace; harmony and disorder.

I believe, as Boccioni stated that art should be a slap in the face, and so I tend to be drawn to bold expression - in shape; colour; and, my favourite, oversized canvasses.
