‘My paintings are often large and made out of a number of canvasses. I draw straight onto the canvas without any preparatory sketches. Painting on bare canvas adds an element of risk as everything I paint remains; so like a piece of musical improvisation it allows a certain spontaneity and heightens the stakes in the work. I leave areas of bare canvas to allow the combination of complex figurative and abstract elements to fully resonate.’
