"Reflections"

These paintings reveal themselves to include within their dynamic geometry and harmonic sequences of colour, the experiences of a young boy with a hand-line, fishing for the rainbow coloured English Mackeral in the early morning shadows of the ships steel hulls, gazing down into their luminous reflections.

Such youthful experiences in Port Taranaki are the basis and beginning of a lifelong interest in ships and boat harbours that have been a significant part of my work as an artist.

I feel privileged to have recovered these youthful experiences in a truly subconscious expression; while struggling at the end of a long career with the aesthetic and abstract reality of making an artwork, I have recreated the excitement and wonder of my youth.
