The current cycle of paintings concerns itself with layers and planes, revealed and hidden, passing fore and aft. Layers invite us to look closer as the various elements play with and contradict our notions of depth and surface plane. What was on top passes behind, unexpectently, whether in strictly geometric and structured layers or as if veiled and curtained another layer, sometimes to reveal more. The eye responds in a direct and selective way to certain colour situations, line arrangements and patterns. The eye maybe misled so that an attempt to interpret may be confused or frustrated by ambiguous structures. The eye tends to see in generalities. What is seen is not what is expected. Movements and balance/imbalance is implied.
