Fire in the Park
In this series I journey into the unpredictable spaces made by marks and colour. By working with edges to create and deny form and space I follow the subliminal images and moods until they coalesce into an unforeseen composition. Though I do not usually start with reference material, I began this painting referencing a haunting photo I stumbled upon, of a confrontation between police and demonstrators in a park in Istanbul. The narrative soon took on a life of its own.
