paintings represent an interesting shift for me, from the world of imagination to the "real" world. The last 3 or 4 pieces I did in the Sacred Spaces series were becoming more and more "realistic", even though they were still palces that were completely out of my head, they had no concrete existence except on the canvas. Meanwhile I started to look more closely at actual buildings, or to be precise parts or sections of buildings, seeing how the way that light fell on a structure created geometric patterns of light and shadow. The current peices all start from this veiwpoint. In a sense I've gone back to the geometric patterns of 3 or 4 years ago, but the patterns arise out of the architecture.

order. This will give you some idea of how I developed and hopefully
