Moving into Rhythm 


Moving Into Rhythm is a series of abstract paintings influenced by my love of jazz music. Jazz has both order and improvisation: a solid base on which a soloist can run with his instinct, free of rules. These paintings are my attempt to fuse the two elements. In some paintings, order and regular rhythms pervade. In others, the brush moves to its own melody, while judgment and technique are left behind. As Miles David once said: “Don’t fear mistakes. There are none”. 

Every one of these paintings is a song, but what you hear is unique to you, the observer.
