His work is generated from a synthesis of memories, material abstractions and direct impressions of the landscape. The source of his inspiration is the fabric of nature. Paint, as earth and water, is regarded as a natural element in itself, rather than as a simple a tool for imitating nature. Paintings are often conceived in a moment and then take time to unfold. Conversely, paintings are also 'unconceived' as initial plans are let go in response to the physical nature of the medium and the unfolding unpredictability of creation. In using raw pigments combined with a variety of mediums he achieves a direct connection to the elemental quality of landscape. Working in this way can be explosively fast and at other times may be meticulously analytical.
