Rich Material II 
Oil and wax on canvas, 300 x 150 cms
Donated by the Artist 2004
Rich Material II, has evolved from an investigation into pictorial space; its language unmediated by the constraints of figuration. The use of colour has very much provided the structure in the work. Lyrical qualities are expressed in the play of colour and paradoxical effects occur, as the space can appear shallow.
The landscape has increasingly osmosed into recent work. This can be directly attributed to a coincidental change in the living environment of the artist from suburbia to a rural area.
