The use of perspective together with the depiction of architectural and geometrical images is a recurrent theme in my practice. My most recent work uses large surfaces, some of which do not conform to the flat, rectangular forms conventionally associated with paintings. Onto these surfaces are placed abstract, ambiguous, though possibly figurative, shapes. Although perspective is generally associated with the Renaissance period when its mathematical rules were first formulated, there is currently a great deal of interest in the subject as evidenced by the resurgence of 3-D films. By using a perspective gradient which appears not to be grounded but floating in space, my work is an inquiry into the relationship between surface, perception and the illusion of depth.
