#ArtistSupportPledge, latest additions!

Here are my latest additions to the Artist Support Pledge. I have looked back into my archive for these abstract, more expressionist paintings, which represent a different phase of my art practice.

These are all smaller pieces, they explore different themes of tension in the paint and the colour, process-led paint application, and the contrast between control and a sense of freedom in the approach to making a painting. The paint is applied in layers, sometimes the layers bleed into one another and the paint reacts.

These paintings date from around 2003-2010, before the current trend for pour paintings has emerged on Instagram. The process paintings they derive from were influenced heavily by artists such as Ian Davenport, Fiona Rae and Damien Hirst’s spin paintings, all from the 1990s. They were painted on the floor flat to enable the paint behaviour to be influential in the outcome of the painting.

Each one of these paintings is household gloss paint on canvas, mostly in bespoke colours. They are on either bespoke gallery standard canvases or more lightweight frames. The price of each painting reflects the canvas grade.



I’m taking part in the Artist Support Pledge initiative, can you help to support me so that I can support another artist?



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress I have instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge


The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artist/s work

To make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge and follow the # to see everyone else’s work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious.
