Prodigiosum

Prodigiosum is a Latin word meaning “unnatural,strange, or wonderful.” In this series of process paintings I paint things that are not contained by reality: representations of my inner psyche translated as pure abstract expression with a focus on colour, form, line and composition.

My process begins intuitively with a colour or shape that occurs to me and then continues via intuition and deliberation. The shapes in my paintings seem to be recognizable but cannot be named: it’s like seeing a small part of a larger whole – you know there’s a bigger picture, a bigger story.
