This is a piece of work from my recent exhibition at The Eden Project in the UK (www.edenproject.com). The exhibition contained over 600 paintings displayed as a grid. Each painting is like a game of hide and seek. The paintings are built up in 3 or 4 layers in a very intense and focused way. I work on about fifty at a time. Each painting is a game of hide and seek, scraping back to reveal layers beneath, or perhaps covering these layers up over and over until I can get the thing to work. The paint is smeared, dragged, flicked, dripped and scratched into using brushes, knives, kitchen spatulas, window squeegees - in fact anything that can assist in manipulating paint on the surface.
