Happiness and painting - my approach to art practice

Sidestepping the philosophical questions of what is happiness, and how to pursue it, as an artist I can only deal confidently with the issues of what makes me happy.

Messing about with paint and probing all aspects of the creative process makes me happy.  Exploring this planet’s stunning landscapes and discovering the wonders of nature makes me very happy.

With my background as an architect, I tend to ‘cut to the chase’ and try to capture the essential elements of a visual experience, hence my leaning towards minimalism and abstraction.

I consider abstraction as the means of selecting and isolating the essential elements of a location, a landscape and such, for example the dominant colours, the mood and the feel of the place.


Eliminating all unnecessary details and extracting the most significant features of a scene is the main task for me.

To illustrate: I bypass depicting the vineyard, the sun above, the vines, the bunches of grapes and the wine, I am searching instead for the final product, the concentrated spirit, the potent cognac, which is the ultimate manifestation of all the essential elements that contributed to the final product. My use of invigorating colour and complex patterns reflects my desire to create works that inspire optimism, reflect the vitality of the wilderness and provide a meaningful experience for the viewer.  I like bright cheerful colours that illustrate the thrill of being alive. While selling contemporary paintings has its benefits for any artist, for me the real achievement (and the source of happiness) comes from the satisfaction people experience when my paintings speak to them.
