Painting is like chasing down a dream. I’m like Richard Drefuss’s character in ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ haunted by an image in his sub-conscious and obsessed with making different versions of it in an attempt to comprehend its source and significance. My work in ‘The Garden: New paintings’ contains certain elements and symbols that repeat; the Baroque folds of cloth, there is an almost spiritual comfort to fabric - the plurality of objects, the physical things that surround us, in this case flowers - the cryptic  marks and fragments of words which symbolise the indecipherable and unknowable - the open or blank space of the horizon, a place to occupy, to visit or to pass through - and finally there are images of birds or wings, icons of both movement and transcendence of  the corporeal world.
