I work in oil, on canvas in a fairly realistic style. At the moment I am intrigued by human social interaction, the effects of interaction and how emotion is detected in posture and micro facial expression- how a bag is clutched, an eyebrow arched, a mouth set.
I do however paint a variety of subjects, and each category seems to be inspired by something different. When doing a still life, I think technique is very important and when doing landscapes- invariably the South African landscape- I am moved by sentiment or nostalgia, painting buildings on the verge of disappearance or the endless open space of the Karoo.
Ultimately, I paint, as all artists do, life as seen through my eyes and directed by my experience.
