As my country of birth, India holds a constant fascination for me. There is a timeless mystery and rich cultural heritage which permeates all aspects of everyday life.

The Indian Series

It was not until 1993 that I was able to revisit India, returning several times since then to gather more research for my paintings, which are a response to the light and heat of North West India, in particular the state of Rajasthan. The richness of colour in the folk art, its unbroken link with the past, and the uncompromising heat and aridity of the Thar desert provide me with powerful and enduring memories. I like to use oblique references to architectural forms and artefacts which symbolize elemental forces, and to suggest the passage of time and the complexity of Indian culture through layering and scraping down the paint surface. These transparent layers of paint allow glimpses of previous forms, and through their ambiguity, invite the viewer to bring a personal interpretation into play.
