Profile

‘My paintings are often large and made out of a number of canvasses. I draw straight onto the canvas without any preparatory sketches, just looking and drawing. Painting on bare canvas adds an element of risk to the painting as everything I paint remains, nothing can be erased; like a piece of musical improvisation it allows spontaneity and heightens the stakes in the work. I leave areas of unpainted canvas for the combination of figurative and abstract elements to resonate within the painting.’ Martha Parsey.
