Abstract Expressionism

Abstract Expressionist work is a very personal process and can be tricky to articulate an explanation. I never try to understand what I do a lot of the time, when I paint I am trying to clear my mind of subjective matter and focus more on my emotions. There are no real words to describe my paintings therefore I like to believe they speak their own language.

Of all the artists movements and isms, I favour expressionism the most. It has that wonderful limitless atmosphere of itself; a world within a frame where something could be possible. My work can exist there with absolute freedom; there are no more rules or ideologies to uphold, or hierarchies to respect. It has a force within itself.
