Surface paint on is built of rags and papers, that carry some meaning, that evoke the hand that touched them: receipts, pages from medical text books, pornography, children’s notebooks. I prefer a page that was hand-written over a sterile piece of material. This surface, which is left visible through the thin paint, interacts with and against the painted. it creates a strange space which denies the illusion of depth of the painted objects and adds sometimes unexpected connection and meanings.

I paint still-lives because they focus on the minute, the dull and the obvious everyday objects and raise them to our attention. Like Cotan and Morandi, I find that there is something pure and true in a well observed cabbage or vase. Still life is the painting genre of humility – the diametrical opposite of the Albertian ideal of paintings that celebrate ‘grand themes’ and the actions of men.It is a feminine genre.
The background usually covers a large percentage of the painting’s surface. This isolates the painted objects and creates a melancholy atmosphere tempered by the activity teeming just below the surface.
I wish my paintings to be slow; to reward a patient viewer.
