The Patea landscape, both seen and remembered, is the starting point for my current work, especially the derelict Freezing Works which was being dismantled even as I started to paint this series. These works explore the boundary between reality and abstraction; the colours are an expression of my feelings about a place or a moment in time.
The Freezing Works was a multi-layered environment, built over many years and in many geographic directions, and in the same way the paintings are layered with marks made by scraping, wiping, dripping and pushing the paint around until the surface matches the memory.
