Asking the question

Truth Seeker, 2016 Oil on linen, 300 x 250 mm

Truth Seeker, 2016
Oil on linen, 300 x 250 mm

Lately I’ve been working on much smaller paintings than I usually do, including some very small works.  The miniature format feels right while I explore a new approach to my old lace treasures and I find the process to be very meditative; there’s an intimacy and concentration of detail in the smaller works that I find very satisfying.  Now, I don’t normally enter art competitions because I think my work is too traditional to be acceptable to contemporary competitions, but last year I decided it was time, and I was delighted to receive positive feedback and to hear that my painting, Truth Seeker, was selected as a finalist in the 2016 Peters Doig Marlborough Art Awards.
