Statement

'These paintings show a development in my work towards abstraction. The views from St Ives lend themselves to a clearer understanding of how to simplify my shapes of colour and the overall compositions. The starting point and inspiration is a view of the buildings, a harbour, a landscape or a still life with these views behind it. The challenge of the paintings is to combine the still life with the view.'
