My father was an industrial chemist who used to conjure and cook chemical compounds to create household products that we would sell to pharmacies and supermarkets. Perhaps it was a result of watching him work in his very basic laboratory that peaked my interest in alchemy.
My process involves mixing a viscous solution of solvent, pigment and medium which I then pour onto a preprepared surface. Once poured, the only tool I have to control the flow of the mixture is to gently manipulate the canvas and thereafter to use gravity to deliver pigment to where I want it.
It is an endlessly fascinating and exciting process that never delivers the same result twice.
