Selected pieces currently on display at The Bond Cafe, Birmingham

In the smaller, more intimate surroundings, with light coming into the room reflected off the canal, the art looks spectacular.

VERSION IV > UNTITLED WORK IN PROGRESS

Currently messing around with a new composition. No idea where it's going. But I mentioned to my studio neighbours Wayne Attwood and Zarina Keyani that using a brush wasn't 'doing it' for me anymore. They suggested various alternatives and Wayne said he uses a Love Film membership card to slap paint down.

So I dug out a wad of weekly travel passes and started using those. The resulting textures are great, and it frees me up to be less fussy about what the paint is doing. It's very promising - with my customary use of masking tape, there's a great contrast between structure and splatter.
