“Thinking about the metals in the oil paint I was using led me to make a number of paintings on copper. Accent Support, a work on Plexiglass, is something different but follows on from this. To look at an image drawn on a transparent support you might become aware that the painting has two sides. Sometimes through the glass, you can see the backside of smeared paint, with the rear-end of the painting coming into play, acting together with what is drawn on the front, both sides adding up in drawing a figure. The material ground of a painting matters to me. I use supports to enjoy aspects of their character. The character of Plexiglass is softer than the brittle tension in normal glass and this helps to determine how the marks of the figure are drawn on.”
