Figurative
I am drawn to the solitary figure, particularly because of my printmaking background. My solitary figures usually reside in undefined surroundings. I greatly admire the figurative painters of the 1950s. The work of painters such as Nathan Oliviera, David Park and Elmer Bischoff has a sense of energetic immediacy that inspires me. Throughout my adult life, I have always seemed to have an interest in mythology, masks and ritural. Our home is filled with a collection of masks. Much of my figurative work has a mask-like resemblance.
