Losing my...

"Examining the interior world, the colour and character of marbles has become a bit of an obsession. It started as a way of adapting my traditional architectural paint techniques (wood graining, scumbling and painting agates, granites and semi-precious stones) for use in two-dimensions on the canvas. But it soon became much more than that. They are youth. They are innocence. They are tiny worlds of colour to be explored at close quarters. They are cheap, taken for granted and demoted amongst the technology of today. They are modest characters that, when looked at in a group, are enhanced immeasurably by the  endless reflections of all the personalities around them. To paint one you have to paint all" JM.
