I have a passion for creating echos and rhythms in my work - perhaps making one shape rhyme with a similar shape across the canvas or picking up a colour in one area and dropping it off elsewhere in the painting.
If you can bring to mind Vermeer's beautiful 'The Guitar Player' (Kenwood house, London) you may recall that her head is tilted to one side allowing her ringlets to drop down - a gorgeous echo of the branches of a tree in a painting on the wall behind her head. My love of connections such as this were fired when I was a student at St. Martrin's - just a few hundred yards away from the National Gallery and it's wonderful collection.
So, when hanging this exhibition at Upfront how could I not place my 'Corridor' painting right there . . at the end of the corridor?
