These paintings contain figures in relationship - moments in time, emotion expressed and held back, obvious feeling and secrets. They contain painted exploration of emotional connection in the color, brushwork, with consideration of artists who have acted as influences. The visual impact of a previous age and the scraps of information are filled in with what is known and what is imagined, creating a narrative unique to each painting.
