When I began painting I experimented with many styles. These included surrealistic paintings, abstracts, sculptures, assemblages, environment and text based art-many of which I have continued to explore. I also produce a wide range of conventional figurative work.
I wanted to find a means of continuous creation in my work and in 1976 found a style that enabled me to maximise and channel my inventive ability. I began to experiment with sequential and elaborative formats that allow a systematic analysis and elaboration of a thematic image or idea.
I also began to combine images, symbols, numbers and words with controlling structures derived from science and mathematics. With tongue in cheek I coined the term 'Ionist Art' for this work (this is what you get if you remove 'express' from Expressionist Art!) I also use the more descriptive term of MEDITATIVE PROCESS ART for this very complex work.
