Analysis of Rising and Falling

"Analysis of Rising and Falling" are a series of paintings investigating sensation and movement, rhythm and anti-rhythm, beats and slips.

This body of work is an analytical approach to my obsession with the co-existence of order and chaos, light and darkness, structure and spontaneity. They are concentrated investigations, placed together in groupings where changes and movements between each are visible, and the visual and optical effects dance before your eyes.

A methodical starting point gives way to a more spontaneous response: I may decide or accidentally"slip a beat" so that the rhythm changes suddenly, or the direction moves or alters and new marks and movements may develop.

These "disturbances" could be seen as metaphors for movements and changes in the landscape, where seemingly random events occur but where each has its' own reasoning governed by cause and effect.
