Abstract

My paintings up until 1977 were large abstract expressionist
works based on the various kinds of colours, rhythms and textures
found in the fencing combinations used to isolate one part of
suburbia from another, i.e. wooden palings, brick, and corrugated
iron of many colours. Sketches of this subject matter formed the
foundation for the colour. The forms were then pushed around to let
the colours and shapes create their own boundaries. It meant destroying
some forms or amplifying others to come up with the end result
- an arrangement that was unified. Each part of the surface was
intended to enhance the other parts. Towards March 1977, the work
was up against a brick wall, literally, and was not evolving. There
seemed to be two choices, quit painting or start all over again.
