The American artist, Rockwell Kent, said, ‘we live for those passing moments of beauty’. I find them constantly in old buildings close at hand, especially sections of façades, which provide a fabulous framework of shapes and colours intersected by bold geometry.
The building’s innate horizontals and verticals are often offset by nature’s delightful diagonals of cast shadows, enriched by the all-encompassing texture of stone, wood, brick or rusting metal.
I find the ensuing battle to harmonise these different elements both challenging and rewarding, and hope the final paintings encapsulate a sort of abstract realism. Indeed, I humbly seek what the Dutch abstract painter, Piet Mondrian, called ‘a dynamic equilibrium’.
