In the late eighties, feeling restricted by the confines of a stretched canvas, I started experimenting with ways in which to reverse the processes of making a painting. Using bags and containers, made of either jute or canvas, I began to explore weight and volume in relationship to the fluid properties of paint, seeking to turn a painting inside out where the medium essentially holds on to itself. This exploration resulted in a hybrid of painting and sculpture, conceptually leaning towards painting as I explore new relationships between the canvas, paint and support. Collapse and decay are present throughout the work, as evidenced in the mended, sewn and glued canvas. Monochromatic colour choices poured to a smooth, flat surface define the paintings’ form and personality.
