More details

'My paintings from 2011 were heading to an almost textural, ethereal, abstract place. This work and other pieces in the  series were heavily layered and went to a dreamlike, poetic space with no perspective. The use of pattern and shape and a childlike scribble  is possibly influenced by  my experience of parenthood. The piece is quite complex but really simple as well; it's aggressive, and really gentle and calm -as thats how I am when I work. My work is directly affected by the music I listen to whilst I paint; like Mozart fighting Motorhead! I called it HURRICANE TANTRUM CONFESSION originally, like a whirlwind of emotion and activity, then changed it to  just TANTRUM CONFESSION: an explosion of activity and calm. As a child I stole £5 to buy five pen-knifes, so I incorporated that into this work with the child's knife. I was also brought up catholic, so ive linked into that. It's a very thoughtful work and not obviously clear in meaning, quite complex but also really simple- more emotionally based. Interestingly I went on to make two completely abstract colour works after this, and I think you can see the beginnings of that way of thinking here in the coloured squares.'
